Frequent ownership ganges throughout history have not diminished its charm and the current gradual repairs being made to Renaissance plaster are restoring its authentic look. Therefore, it is not surprising that the castle's monumental Medieval architecture now provides the ideal setting for filming historical documentaries and has been attracting film crews from around the world for several years. Visitors can climb the castle tower offering breath-taking views of the town and the landscape crossed by the Sázava River, which is linked to the name of Jaroslav Foglar, a writer and scouting pioneer whose life has had a positive influence on many generations. The castle houses a museum dedicated to his life, work and scouting activities. You can also visit the Municipal Museum and several other smaller exhibitions.
