Kost Castle

Considering the geological point, the castle has a good position. It is located on sandstone rock which increases the difficulty of attack, in the valley with water sources suitable for defence purposes, and with drinking water sources. The surrounding rocks form a viewing horizon higher than the castle, which is therefore not visible from the distance. At the same time, the surrounding area included well workable construction stone.
