Cache Description

PajrekZricenina hradu se nachazi 2,5 km od Nyrska na jednom z poslednich vybezku Kralovskeho hvozdu (627 m n. m. - vybezek horskeho hrebenu Hranicare). Drive byval pomeznim hradem, nebyl prilis rozmerny, avsak dulezity polohou (zalozen na zacatku 14. stoleti) pri stare zemske stezce.

Roku 1467 vtrhlo bavorske krizacke vojsko do Cech a 22. zari v bitve nedaleko Bystrice nad Uhlavou bylo porazeno kralovskym vojskem, vedenym snad Rackem z Janovic. V roce 1472, jiz po Rackove smrti, vtrhli Bavori opet do Cech, Pajrek dobyli a vypalili. Roku 1504 se hrad uvadi jako pusty. Hrad opravil az Jindrich Kostomlatsky z Vreskovic, ktery Pajrecky statek koupil v roce 1512. Loupezivy rytir byl pozdeji jako zemsky skudce zajat a roku 1520 na Prazskem hrade stat. Pri castych vymenach majitelu hrad rychle pustl a od poloviny 16. stoleti opusten trvale.

PajrekThe ruins of the Pajrek castle lie in the Czech Republic above the town of Nyrsko in the western part of the Sumava (Bohemian Forest), 505 m a.s.l.

This important borderline castle was established at the beginning of the 14th century. In 1472 it was already abandoned. In 1504 the castle was reconstructed, but it was only used till the middle of the 16th century, when it was finally abandoned. Only the remains of the huge tower have been preserved up till the present day.
