castle of Zelená Hora

Zelená Hora ("Green Mountain") is a castle on the south side of Nepomuk, in the Czech Republic. The church has been a pilgrimage site since the 1700s.[1]

In 1819 Václav Hanka's forged medieval Manuscript of Zelená Hora, a counterpart to his Manuscript of Dvůr Kralové, was allegedly discovered in the castle and not exposed as a literary hoax, by Atheneum, until 1886.
