Hukvaldy Castle

Hukvaldy Chateau

Get to know the place where the world famous Czech composer Leoš Janáček comes from.

Above the village of Hukvaldy, rises a castle of the same name, which provided the composer with inspiration for many of his works. Janáček allegedly liked to sit on one of the castle’s lookout points. The romantic ruins of the medieval castle are the ideal place to look out over the countryside for you too. In the forest below the castle, you may come across the Cunning Little Vixen, or certainly at the very least across a monument to her. You can also concentrate on listening to Janáček’s music in the summer during the annual music festival, which takes place right in the castle and the adjacent game preserve.
