Helfenburk

 

The castle ruin lies really untraditionally in a deep valley south-eastward from the village Ostre. One can get there by the red marked tourist route or by the forest route along the spring that starts at the parking place nearby the road from Ustek to Ostre.
 
 
The castle was founded in the 14th century and has played an important role in the history of the region. It was abandoned in 1620 but reconstructed at the end of the 19th century.
 
 
These days the castle belongs to the Ustek city. A group of volunteers takes care of its maintenance and tourist service.
 
 
On weekends the whole place, as well as the castle tower are opened to the public.
