Rychnov nad Kněžnou

RYCHNOV NAD KNĚŽNOU was founded in 1258 as a ford on the Kněžna River and received status of a town in 1488. It’s surrounding area is wonderfully picturesque. The town’s highlight is a splendid Renaissance chateau, later rebuilt in Baroque style, which has a remarkable and historic art gallery and riding-school in the chateau garden, and the
Holy Trinity Church with a belfry that carries the third heaviest bell in the country. The town has a long Jewish tradition, and the Synagogue and Jewish Cemetary are open for visits. During summer theatre plays can be seen in non-traditional places (i.e. chateau park etc.), craft markets, amateur theatre festival, and alternative movie festival, and many other activities are organised by the local people.
