The Castle Museum is located in the Little Castle or „Hrádek", which is the oldest part of the castle complex. The castle chambers, normally featured in a castle tour, are presented here in an elegant combination with museum exhibits. The exhibition is topped off with an ascent to the Castle Tower where you can enjoy not only a breathtaking view onto the Old Town, but also a look into the castle moat below where bears have been bred for centuries.
