Zámek Křimice

From Wikipedia: Zámek Křimice is located in the village of Křimice, part of the city of Pilsen. It has been protected as a cultural monument since 1964.

The castle was preceded by a fortress built by Drslavica sometime around the middle of the 13th century. In the years 1245–1289, Půta, son of Protiva from Žinkov, was supposed to reside there.

Further information only comes from the second half of the 14th century, when it was first owned by Pilsen burgher Petrold Nussl and after him by another Pilsen burgher, Václav Točník. The Točniks gradually became rich, were promoted to lords and also founded a brewery near the fortress.

After nationalization, the castle was first owned by Škoda Plzeň, which adapted it for a boarding school. During these modifications, the interiors were completely destroyed and the furniture stolen. Since 1965, the castle has been owned by the Youth Homes in Pilsen, and since 1974 by the West Bohemian Museum in Pilsen, which used it as a depository. However, none of the owners cared for it too much, so they abandoned the castle and the castle park.

After November 1989, it was returned to the Lobkowicz family in 1994.
