In 1585, the fortress, the town and the domain passed down to Vilém Dubský of Třebomyslice, who undertook a costly renovation and turned the rather dilapidated residence into a Renaissance chateau in 1589. However, the current appearance of the chateau is from 1874, when it was rebuilt again in the Neo-Renaissance style. Today, the chateau houses the Horácká Gallery, which is unique for featuring pieces by locals Jan Štursa and Vincenc Makovský, but also by other important figures of Czech sculpture from the first half of the 20th century. An extraordinary exhibit is the glass collection from the Škrdlovice glassworks. In summer, attractive late Gothic underground corridors are open to visitors and the chateau’s courtyard becomes a concert venue.
