Svojanov Castle was already mentioned in the 13th century. It was established by Přemysl Otakar II to protect the important merchant routes from Litomyšl to Brno. The original Gothic castle underwent restoration work following fires in the 16th and 19th century, first in the Renaissance style and then in Empire style, which has been preserved till this day.

At present, the castle is a popular tourist destination. You can take one of two tours at the castle, walk along the galleries to the medieval walls, climb up to the viewing platform of the castle tower, from where a view of the surrounding landscape opens up to you, or you can visit the Gothic garden with rose and herb beds, and a fruit orchard.

A number of cultural events are held throughout the entire tourist season. Even you can visit one of the concerts, theatre performances, or fencing presentations and demonstrations of traditional trades in enchanting areas of the medieval castle. If you truly like Svojanov, you can also take advantage of the unique possibility to accommodate yourself right in the castle in the newly reconstructed rooms furnished with historical period furniture.
