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.

 

A stone challenge – “Hradec Stonehenge”

A piece of art by Pavel Charousek from Krnov can be seen in St Mary´s meadows around a hundred metres from the red bridge. It was created in 1998 during the 1st sculptures´ symposium called The Amber Way. Sixty boulders about 1x2 m in size represent a symmetrical sign of the Universe with some evidence of Life. It is also possible to watch it from the White Tower in the castle park.
