Hukvaldy Castle is a ruin of a gothic castle located near the village Hukvaldy , not far from the city Frýdek-Místek in the Czech Republic.

Historic highlights

The castle was founded probably somewhere around 1257- 1285. It was most likely built by one of the sons of Arnold of Hückeswagen who came to the Nový Jíčín demesne from Rhineland. Since then, the castle had many different owners. In 1465, the king George of Poděbrady passed Hukvaldy Castle to the Olomouc bishopric. At the end of the 15th century, the castle went under reconstruction, which continued into the 16th century. However, it gradually lost its military importance and became only the residence of the Hukvaldy demesne administration. In 1762, a great fire broke out and the immense castle became a ruin, which was a very popular place to visit in the 19th century, anyway. In the 20th century, Hukvaldy Castle was conserved and several parts of the castle were reinforced. In 1566, a game preserve was established around the castle.

Home of Leoš Janáček

The composer and Hukvaldy native Leoš Janáček (1854-1928) liked to make trips to the game preserve when visiting his hometown. An international music festival, called Janáček Hukvaldy, annually takes place there in his honour.

Opening hours

Hukvaldy Castle is accessible with a guide or on your own. In April and October, it is open at weekends and from May to September it is open daily except from Monday.
