Úsov Chateau


Úsov is one of the oldest preserved North Moravian castle and is built in the French style. It suffered significant damage during the Swedish occupation in the year 1643 only to be restored at the end of the 17th century during the time of Lord Jan Adam of Liechtenstein. He had a three-storey palace built with a monumental staircase designed by the Italian architect Domenic Martinelli with part of the castle thus taking on a chateau character. The chateau hunting-forestry museum was founded in the year 1898 and is a unique collection throughout all of Central Europe.

Visitors may take a look at approximately ten thousand items from stuffed exotic and domestic animals, minerals, antlers and insects to models of forest structures and odd poaching weapons. The animal trophies form foreign areas come from Lichtensteins' trips around Europe as well as Asia, American and Africa. Art lovers will appreciate the exhibition of paintings by the painter Lubomír Bartoš, a native son from nearby Klopina. Traditional fairs of historical crafts and events with fairytale characters take place at Úsov and are extremely popular with children.
