Czech Republic Rabi

Rabi Castle

Rabí or Rábí is ruined castle in Southwestern Bohemia, situated on a prominent hill by the central course of the River Otava, in the foothills of Sumava region, 130 km from Prague, Czech Republic. It is the largest castle (in terms of area) from all Czech castles. Its name might derive from the German word raben ("raven"), or it could be mangled Czech name vrab(č)í vrch ("sparrow's peak").
The Rabí Castle was proclaimed as National Cultural Monument in 1978.
