Týnec nad Sázavou Castle

The creation of the castle in Týnec nad Sázavou is shrouded in mystery, but its monumental size and cost of construction indicate that its first owner must have been an important individual within the ruling class at the time. Of the original 11th-century structure, only the Romanesque rotunda and the castle\\\\\\\'s watchtower remain standing today.

Even though only parts of the once-magnificent residence have survived until the present day, it is clear it must have belonged to an important individual. The core of the castle was composed of three structures – the rotunda, the watchtower and the keep. The castle was expanded around the year 1300, adding two additional courtyards with agricultural buildings enclosed within defensive walls. Its modern history was influenced by the boom in pottery production in the late 18th and early 19th century. The first workshop specialised in these goods, located directly within the castle premises, was established by count František Josef of Vrtba. A building adjacent to the tower now houses the town museum and its collection of pottery and archaeological finds from the local area
