North Bohemian town with a historic center and a beautiful castle complex
The town of Benešov nad Ploučnicí lies between Děčín and Česká Lípa and is surrounded by beautiful nature – Bohemian Switzerland National Park, Bohemian Central Mountains Protected Landscape Area, Labské pískovce Protected Landscape Area and Lužické Mountains Protected Landscape Area.
The center of the city consists of a large square with town houses, a baroque Marian column and a distinctive town hall building.
There are a number of Renaissance burgher houses on the square.
The Renaissance town hall was built in the second half of the 17th century
Benešov nad Ploučnicí State Castle is actually a complex of several buildings. This unique example of the Saxon Renaissance consists of the following buildings – Horní zámek, Dolní zámek, Volfův zámek, Morzinovský zámek and Konojedský zámek. So really extraordinary for such a small town. The castle complex can be seen during organized tours.
In 1578, a castle was built for Wolf of Salhausen, after which this castle building in the vicinity of the Lower Castle is named
Behind the complex of castle buildings there is a park with mature trees open to the public.
The Church of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary was built between 1483 and 1557. It is a late Gothic rectangular three-aisled nave. The oldest part of the church is the tower, which was built in the early 14th century and later repaired and raised.
