Zakšín castle, sometimes called “Pustý zámek” is one of the most remarkable examples of fortified settlements situated on sandstone.

The castle was built on the site of an old fort in 1400 during the rule of Václav Berka. Around 1450 it had already been abandoned. It used to stand on 3 sandstone blocks, the gaps between them serving as moats. The most interesting is the second one, carved sideways, with a protrusion allowing one to go up to the drawbridge. Some rooms are carved into the rock.
