Moravská Třebová, the Renaissance pearl of the Czech Republic  

Sightseeing tours of the château

Medieval Torture Chamber (30-35 minutes)

Torture law is the theme of this exhibit entitled “Medieval Torture Chamber,” which was created in 2007 in the cellars of the Moravská Třebová château. The exhibit introduces visitors to the inhumane practices of torture. Here you can experience the horrific atmosphere of the torture and execution chamber, and try for yourselves some of the various torture devices and coercive tools, such as the Spanish boot, pillory, thumbscrews, cucking stool and rack.
Moravská Třebová was granted execution rights around 1406, and the execution and torture chamber used to be located outside of the city walls. The current exposition in the cellars of the former Boskovice castle is a reminder of this tragic period.
Come and experience the Middle Ages for yourself!

Admission: CZK 70 / 40 / CZK 200

Visiting the Moravská Třebová Water Park

, an image opens in a new window

The Moravská Třebová water park was the result of the comprehensive reconstruction of the former swimming pool at a cost of CZK 62 million. This included the construction of a swimming pool with four lanes. A recreational pool was also built with aquatic attractions such as a water mushroom, water spouts, and wall jets, benches for sitting with air massage across the entire surface, pool bottom air bubbler and a rocking pool. Without a doubt, the water park’s greatest attractions are the 51 m and 29 m long slides.

The pools are heated by heat pumps. The reconstruction project also added changing rooms, lockers, and showers, as well as a handicapped-accessible footpath. For the greater comfort of our guests, the complex also features a snack bar with pleasant seating for all ages.

Heated pool, water slide – great fun for all ages.

Museum of an Egyptian Princess, or a Trip Around the World

, an image opens in a new window

Enjoy a unique trip around the world. The brand-new exhibit at the Moravská Třebová Museum will make such a journey possible. Experience the excitement of discovering far-off lands together with traveller Ludwig Holzmeister, a former patron of the museum. You will see the unique historical collections that he brought home from his travels, including items from India, Burma, Tibet and Japan. Rarities in the collection include four samurai swords, one of which even features a blade that dates back to the 15th century and is protected by a Japanese komusō monk. Samurai swords on permanent display cannot be seen anywhere else in the Czech Republic.

The apex of your experience, however, will be meeting Egyptian Princess Hereret, who lived in Thebes over 2,500 years ago. Thanks to computed tomography and 3D technology, you can see what she actually looked like. She was the first mummy in the Czech Republic for which experts created a 3D visualisation. You can also view the sarcophagus with its mummy as well as animations of her face.

This unique interactive and multimedia exposition, enhanced by sound effects, offers visitors an inimitable experience. After the Náprstek Museum, this Egyptian collection is the largest in the country.
