    Wedding at the Castle

    Karlstejn Castle appears to be a popular place to hold weddings on the weekends. It's easy to understand why. The only drawback is that the wedding party has to be willing to put up with rude and insensitive tourists who intrude on their celebration by taking photographs of private moments.

    Before Indoor Plumbing

    by europebn Updated Mar 8, 2003

    It was interesting to hear that well before indoor plumbing, there used to be an opening coming from the royal family's bedrooms to outside the castle. Basically, it was some sort of 'shoot', where if they had to go to the toilet, they leaned out and went, which of course, there was nothing but the ground below. Yuck. A real 'poop shoot'! And there were workers who had to clean it off the ground. (Hope you're not eating while reading this)
