The dominant structure in the district town of Náchod is a Baroque castle overlooking the town square. The castle offers two guided tours, which will introduce the visitors to the famous Brussels tapestry from the mid-17th century as well as the collection of flower still lifes. The castle’s main tower (offering a spectacular view of the whole town and its surroundings), dungeon and terrace are open to public. Children especially will be entertained by the two bears, Dáša and Ludvík, who live in the castle’s moat.
Another very interesting site not only for military history lovers, at the end of a challenging walk (but also reachable by car), is a World War II fortress in the village of Dobrošov. This fortification was built between 1935 – 1938 as part of an immense system of borderland protection against the Nazis. The bunker, called “Zelený,” is the only artillery bunker open to the public in the Czech Republic. The fortress is undoubtedly an exceptional military landmark.
