Hranice

Hranice will charm you with its Renaissance burgher's homes with Baroque façades and original arcades, and by the Baroque parish church of The Beheading of St. John the Baptist. It will wow you by its beautiful Renaissance chateau with arcades ringing it like a necklace, with its unique roofed courtyard - part of its original décor, used today for cultural activities. The Hranice synagogue, built in Moorish-Byzantine style, is today used as a concert hall, and exhibition hall for modern art. The existence of the Jewish community in Hranice is also witnessed by the nearby Jewish cemetery, open to the public as a place of reverence. Other cultural experience may be had at the several Hranice galleries, its Cultural Centre, and if you're there in June, don't forget to visit the annual summer festival Hranice Rock Fest. In September, Hranice hosts European Jazz Days.
