The medieval castle Kaltenštejn is located on a not very high hill in the Jeseníky Mountains, 437 m above sea level, near the village of Černá Voda. Kaltenštejn was built in 13th century and it also appears in contemporary written sources as "castrum Kaltensteyn".
In these days Kaltenštejn is very affected by the illegal activities of amateur "treasure finders". In response, the implementation of a long-term project of mapping and preventive protection of fortified medieval fortifications in the Jesenicko region began.
The aim of non-destructive research is mapping, visual digitization and precise geodetic survey of the castle complex.
Also important is the aspect of alerting the public to the need to protect destroyed monuments, which are an integral part of our cultural awareness.
