Pardubice Castle is a showcase for the work of many talented individuals – architects, designers, sculptors, painters, engineers and military planners. This impressive late Gothic and early Renaissance residence, originally built for the powerful Pernstejn dynasty, is an oasis of calm in the very heart ov Pardubice´s city centre. Nestling amid its greenery, and still protected by its fortifications, this majestic palace still has the power to surprise visitors with its grandeur as soon as they step through the gates. The castle attracts tens of thousands of people per year, enjoying not only the building itself, but also the treasures of the East Bohemia Musem and East Bohemia Gallery. Pardubice Castle is one of the Czech Republice´s most valuable cultural heritage sites.
