One of the three castles in Jabloneck is the ruins of the Frýdštejn castle, which is the northernmost castle ruin in the region. The dominant feature of the current ruin is a massive cylindrical tower with a diameter of nine meters, which will be made available to the public.

The castle, standing on steep, inaccessible rocks, was founded in the second half of the 14th century, probably by the lords of Bibrštejn . At the beginning of the 15th century, the castle was besieged by the Hussites , and at the end of the 16th century, it is said to be deserted.

A simple sandstone chapel from 1823, built in the folk baroque style, stands in the basement of the castle. The history of Frýdštejn is connected with the name of the painter Beneš Knüpfer and Eduard Milén or the stonemason Ignác Martinec, who is also credited with the work on the decoration of the Pantheon .
