My guess is Bouzov Castle.

Good guess Jay!

For anyone who doesn't recognise it, it is indeed Bouzov castle, birthplace of King Jiři of Poděbrady (according to legend). Bouzov village is about 40km west of Olomouc, 50km south of Šumperk and the upper towers of the castle are visible from the main Prague-Olomouc-Slovakia train line as it passes Mohelnice.

Well done Jay!

I knew and I was too late to get a guess in!

Jay was pretty quick, wasn't he? I have a hunch he's going to be a bit of a force to be reckoned with on the ol' Where the Czech...?s
