Hradec nad Moravici

Moravian-Silesian Film Office

On the prehistoric Amber Trail lies one of the largest castles in the Czech Republic, exceptional in its layout and strong genius loci. Ludwig van Beethoven lived and composed in Hradec nad Moravici for three months, and the piano on which the composer played is still here. The castle is the only one in the surrounding area with its original furnishings and interiors laid out as they were captured in the photographs of the then owner, Prince Lichnovsky, in 1902.
