STATE CASTLE BÍTOV


 

The oldest of castles, founded 1061-67 as a fortress to protect the southern border of the Přemyslid state. Inhabited until 1945. Today's likeness dates back to the reconstruction in the years 1825-63. A collection of numerous zoo-preparations, the most popular is the collection of fifty stuffed dogs of various breeds, the largest of its kind in the world. The Armoury (Zbrojnice) - since 2003, a selection of the most significant exhibits is on display after 33 years. The armoury contains various medieval weapons, as well as superb works of art by 17th century gunsmiths. The core of the oriental section is devoted to objects from Islamic lands.
