The town walls in Polička, as we know them today, were built in the middle of the 14th century. The 10 metre high and 2.5 metre wide walls are reinforced by nineteen semicircular towers and the entire system of 1220 metres in length, belong among the most preserved city walls in Central Europe.

You can visit the walls on your own within the scope of a walking tour or with a guide you can directly mount the walkway of the reconstructed part of the walls, which is accessible along with several castle towers.

The tour of the city walls can also be combined with a visit to the native room of Bohuslav Martinů in the tower of the Church of St. Jacob. The newly opened Bohuslav Martinů Centre has been named after this musical composer, where you can find enjoyable interactive exhibitions that not only focus on the Polička native, but also on the history of the city of Polička and its surroundings. Moreover, you can also admire the fragile beauty of a unique collection of Horacky glass here or you can visit a school classroom that represents how classrooms looked at the end of the 19th century, when little Bohuslav Martinů began attending school.
