Filipov is a village that became part of the town of Caslav (about 2.5 km southeast) in the district of Kutna Hora. There is a castle and a number of houses in the English Gothic style, so it looks like a small Hluboká.

The dominant feature of the village is the local chateau, which was built in the 18th century as a baroque chateau for Filip Krakovský of Kolovrat. In the years 1863–1866, the entire chateau, together with the adjoining courtyard, was rebuilt in the English Gothic style. Extensive reconstruction created a richly structured, large building of a representative castle. The adjacent garden is still partly in the style of the late Baroque. Today, the castle is in private hands and there is a medical facility.

It is interesting that the adjacent buildings were rebuilt together with the chateau, which are also decorated with richly decorated facades, projections, cornices and pseudo-Gothic attics. Unfortunately, not all buildings are now in good condition.
