+6 attractions

Hukvaldy is a town in Moravia with the largest Gothic castle in the region. In the past it belonged to the bishops of Olomouc, and the town developed as its servant settlement. There is also a frequently visited landscape park with breeding deer, fallow deer and other deer.

Built in the 13th century, Hukvaldy Castle is the most important attraction in the area. In the past, it was the seat of the administrators of extensive episcopal estates and was used until the second half of the 18th century. Later, a baroque mansion was built below the castle hill, to which the administration of the estate moved. Currently, there is a carriage museum in its farm buildings.

Hukvaldy Castle is open to the public. Due to its location on the top of the hill, it is also a good viewpoint over the surrounding area. You can visit the courtyard, part of the preserved residential buildings, towers and pass through walls around part of the area.

The second most important attraction of Hukvald is the park located below the castle. It is inhabited by herds of deer, roe deer and fallow deer, which can be admired while walking along the landscape paths. There is also a statue of Lisiczka, which refers to the opera of Leoš Janáček, a Czech composer who was born in Hukvaldy. There is now a tourist information center in his family home.
