The Czech and Slovak Republics take pride in their two thousand castles, ranging from thirteenth-century ruines to earlier 20th century residences of the old aristocracy. Many have been renovated for other modern uses as old age homes, company holiday retreats, and even training centres for the secret police. Some have been returned to their former owners.
