This morning we had a short tour of the Castle Czocha, where we are staying for a total of four nights.
I stand near the castle's front entrance. The Knight's Hall is along the corridor.
This is the library. Note the fairly innocent-looking bookcase within its glass doors.
Beneath the Treasury are the steel and concrete reinforced doors. When the Treasury was discovered, no treasure was found.
There are two theories of the origins of the castle's name. According to information we received, the name 'Czocha' may be due to the first owners being Czechs. Or, it may be because the local linen industry process of roughly combing or tousling flax fibres to make linen thread is described as 'czochrac'.
