Kašperk Castle

St. Nicholas Church

St. Nicholas Church and its churchyard from the 14th century is a unique mediaeval monument preserved to this day. There is a chapel next to the church. It was sacred to St. Anna, the patron of family and miners. You can find both sites in the middle of an old cemetery next to Kašperské Hory town, decorated mostly with cast-iron crosses from the 14th century,
