Czech Pozůstatky hradu Radkov

According to one version of history the castle, as the residence of a marauding knight, was razed by troops of Czech King Václav II in 1286, along with the nearby Hřebeč, Mladějov, Hoštejn, Žichlínek and Hradisko u Moravské Třebové castles...

Ruins of a castle likely from the 13th century that earlier guarded the trade route through the Třebůvka River valley; the site is shrouded in mystery even for historians as there are no traces of a building, there is a massive wall protecting one side but no side walls, etc. A Slavic settlement from the 10th and 11th centuries originally stood on the site. According to one version of history the castle, as the residence of a marauding knight, was razed by troops of Czech King Václav II in 1286, along with the nearby Hřebeč, Mladějov, Hoštejn, Žichlínek and Hradisko u Moravské Třebové castles. The castle was favourably situated on a promontory over the river, had a large fore-castle area, and was protected by a 9 metre wide moat and rampart. A second castle moat was carved directly from the rock; behind it are remnants of a gabled 2.8 metre wide castle wall.
