Sychrov Castle can be found near village Sychrov in the Liberec Region of the Czech Republic. It is unique example of Neo-Gothic castle from second half of 19th century. Large park surrounds the castle.

Since the 15th century, a fort existed in the place now occupied by Sychrov. During the years between 1690–93, a small baroque castle was constructed here. In 1820 the castle was bought by the family of Rohan, French aristocrats exiled by the French Revolution who decided to stay in the Austrian Empire. The 125-year-long ownership by the Rohans proved to be the most important in the castle's history. In 1945 the castle was nationalised because of the Beneš decrees. Since 1950, it has been open to the public to a small extent. Since the 1970s, however, large parts of the castle were open to the public. Since the beginning of the 1990s, an extensive reconstruction and restoration of the castle exteriors, interiors, and the park have been under way, the object of which is to make Sychrov look as close to its original form at the time of its biggest boom- i.e. its condition in the second half of the 19th century- as possible. In 1995 it came under the protection of the state as national cultural heritage.
