A castle ruin with rich history and living present. The Rabí castle is the largest castle ruin in Bohemia. It ranks among buildings with rich architectural past because it witnessed many reconstructions and extensions. The massive square tower with a special narrow bailey and outer hoarding is the oldest part of the castle from the period after 1300. At the turn of the 14th and 15th century, other residential and service buildings were built, and the second ravelin was added to fortify the castle. In the last construction phase, extensive artillery fortifications with flankers were erected.The Rabí castle was most likely founded no later than in the 13th century, however no written record of the first owners was preserved. According to the newest findings historians assume that the Romanesque foundations of the castle formed the northernmost part of the dominion of the Counts of Bogen and, later on, the Wittelsbachs. At the end of the 13th century, the area presumably became part of the Czech state again. It is assumed that the Lords of Velhartice family –  who were until recently considered founders of the castle - acquired it still in the form of the fortified tower. The first owners documented in writing (by a court rolls of 1380) were the Švihov family of Rýzmberk. This family had owned Rabí for almost 200 years during which the castle was built to its final shape. On the obverse side we can see the entire Rabí castle complex and its name written on a decorative scroll in circumscription.The reverse side features a knight’s torso in a heraldic helmet protecting the family’s coat-of-arms with his sword. The name of the owners’s family in circumscription reads – Švihovští z Rýzmberka (Švihov family of Rýzmberk).Limited edition 150 pcs
