Vranov Castle

High on a rocky spur overshadowing the vast expanse of the Vranov reservoir, stands the picturesque castle of the same name. Its foundation goes back to the 11th century when it served as one of the elements of the defensive system associated with the frontier river Dyje. Vranov Castle belongs to the most interesting buildings of the central European baroque. It was reconstructed from the old Roman Gothic castle, firstly mentioned as a landlord border fortress in 1100. It inherited two prismatic towers, part of the rampart and the building of so called ‘pøedhradí’ (the area lying in front of the castle building). Today, being a national cultural monument, it is under the solicitude of the state. The so-called Hall of Ancestors, oval in plan, is the finest part and spitizual centre of the castle.
