Sights and tourist destinations

  The majority of visitors want to see Hradec Castle. It was the Lichnovsky lineage who wrote the most significant chapter in its history. The castle houses valuable collections of antique furniture, glass and china, a library and a picture gallery. 

    Hradec, though, does not mean only the castle. Many other places are worth seeing, too – among them the Church of St. Peter and Paul from the 16th century, stations of the Cross called the Silesian Calvary and unique relics of fortifications called Šance from the Silesian Wars, which gave its name also to the latest tourist attraction, the Šance Observation Tower, situated 522 m above the sea level. From its top there is a marvelous view of Opava region and both the Beskydy and Jeseníky mts. You should not miss a 19th century wonder of technology, a 3.5 km long Weisshuhn`s Paper Mill Race leading through three tunnels built in slopes and two aqueducts.

 

The Chapel of Virgin Mary of Lourdes

It can be found on the foothill of Hanuše, to the left of the road to Benkovice. It was built after 1880 by a religious family of Doctor Gnädinger, who had moved to Hradec from Freistadt near Vienna. People from Hradec and its surroundings come there to pray, to thank St. Mary and ask her for help. They also bring flowers to the place, which was reconstructed by Mr Zbyněk Řemelka in 2007.
