Bečov nad Teplou

For lovers of art as well as detective novels. An important archaeological find was made by the criminal police.

This little town is to be found sixteen kilometres south of Karlovy Vary and twenty eight kilometres from the German border. The local castle was probably established in the 13th century, when it guarded an important route and was the point of duty collection. During the reign of Charles IV it had already been an important settlement and the castle was enlarged with towers. Even today you can admire its unusually well-preserved original character. In the early 18th century the castle acquired a new neighbour – a Baroque chateau that in 1985 witnessed a unique detective tale. The criminal police were searching for the hidden work of art – the 13th century St. Maurus Reliquary and were fighting against time and a foreign dealer who wished to smuggle it abroad from the then Czechoslovakia. Fortunately, they were successful and so today on your visit to the Bečov Chateau you can marvel at the masterfully crafted item that ranks among the most valuable of its kind in the Czech Republic.
