Chateau Rájec nad Svitavou
A unique castle in the style of Louis XVI with typical French roof with dormers. The castle was built in place of a Renaissance castle, which burned down at the turn of the 17th and 18th century. The castle is surrounded by English park and the interiors house valuable period furniture and large art collections.
This Rococo-Classicist chateau fascinates visitors mostly because of its unique architecture, which is quite exceptional in Moravia, and by the richly-furnished interiors of the princes from the Salm family.
Among the rich collections is a vast collection of oriental china and the famous castle library with 60,000 volumes. The tradition of chateau gardening is demonstrated by the large English park and annual topical exhibitions of flowers in the chateau’s historical halls.
