Great Gothic Hall, Knights´ Halls, armory
Travel back in time to the Late Gothic and Early Renaissance era, when Pardubice and its castle were the main residence of the Pernsteins – the richest aristocratic family in Bohemia and Moravia. Over the course of seven decades (1491-1560), Pardubice was home to three generations of the Pernstein dynasty. During that time, the castle underwent a complete reconstruction which transformed it into a grand and comfortable home for its wealthy owners, as well as turning it into an impregnable fortress. Pardubice’s castle combines these two roles in a beautifully preserved historical jewel. So welcome to the Pernsteins’ court!
