Jansky vrch is the only accessible historical monument in the Jesenik District. It is situated on a rocky hill above the town Javorník in the Czech Republic . The town lies at the northernmost tip of North Moravia, near the borders with Poland . Initially, a castle stood here. The first written mention dates back to 1307. At that time, it was the property of the Princes of Svidník. In 1348, they ceded it to the Bishops of Breslau. The fortress, and later the castle were owned by the bishopric, except a few small breaks. The castle was destructed during the 15th century. However, by the end of the century, the late Gothic adjustments of the castle culminated. In the 18th century, Jansky vrch was rebuilt into a baroque castle. In 1959, Jansky vrch was loaned to the Czechoslovak Republic. Its transfer had not been carried out until 1984, until the compensation between the Polish and the Czech Catholic Churches. On 1 January 2002, Jansky vrch was added on the list of the National Cultural Heritage. The castle has two sightseeing circuits. The first one shows the rooms with well-preserved furniture, mostly from the 19th century. The visitors can also see one of the largest collections of pipes in the country. The second circuit presents the household background of the castle, usually not often seen in other historical buildings. Visitors can explore the kitchen, the ironing room, the mangling room, the apartment of the castle keeper, the servants' dining room and other rooms. During the summer, the guided tours are enriched by short concerts and fencing performances. In April and October is Jansky vrch opened during the weekends, and from May to September it is opened daily, except Mondays.
