Discover the extraordinary beauty of a town whose history stretches back nearly eight centuries. Travelling through the corners of Svitavy while taking in the area’s remarkable landmarks is an unforgettable experience and an excellent opportunity to get to know the entire region.

The appearance of the town has gone through substantial changes during its eight hundred year existence. The small town was dominated by the tower in the fortifications, a gate, churches, and the town hall. The town took on a distinctly industrial character in the 19th century. While factory chimneys are partly a thing of the past today, we can encounter history with every step we take in the Svitavy. Rediscovered landmarks are proof of this.
