Hiking around Karlštejn Castle

Today we hiked the area around Karlštejn Castle, a Gothic castle built in the French style and founded in 1348 by King Charles IV. On our hike we also visited two quarries that were worked by prisoners of war during the late 1940s and early 1950s. I’m not sure how far we hiked, but my Apple Watch tells me it was about 20,000 steps!
