Rabi Castle lies on the upper reaches of the river Otava in Bavorov highlands at an altitude of about 480 metres about 10 km northeast of Sušice in the vicinity of the same village. It is one of the largest and best fortified ruins not only in our country, but also in Central Europe. At the time of its greatest fame it had an area of around 10,000 square metres. The castle was probably already in existence in the early 13th century in the form of a residential but defensive tower. At the turn of the 14th and 15th century it was rebuilt and refortified. Between 1420 and 1421 it was captured by the Hussites. In the 15th century during the reign of Půta II. of Rýzmberk the castle got a new form. During the reign of Ferdinand III. the castle was put on the list of castles destined for extinction. His owners prevented its immediate demolition, but it was ordered not to be repaired, and through time it fell into decay.
