Josefovhttp://www.pevnostjosefov.cz/?lang=en – The Josefov Fortress was founded by the Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II in 1780. It was designed and its construction was originally supervised by the French architect Claude-Benoit chevalier de Saint-Louis Duhamel de Querlonde. The fortress was completed and put into operation in 1787.

The main purpose of the fortress was to defend the northern border of the Empire against Prussia. The fortress had other functions as well: it housed a huge armoury, gunpowder magazine and pantries and provided safe accommodation for both the military and civilians.
