Švihov is a beautiful Gothic water castle. It is protected by the state as a national cultural monument. There were two moats around the castle: the inner one on the site of today's inner courtyard and the outer one, which is only partially preserved. If necessary, they could be filled very quickly with water from three surrounding ponds fed by canals from the Úhlava River.
