This ancient seat of the Wroclaw bishops, laid out on a spur of land above the town, is first mentioned as a Gothic castle as early as the year 1307.

Chateau Velké Losiny

Velké Losiny

The rare original preserved chateau interiors present the lives of noble familes in the 16th century. The second floor even contains the court and the hall where the witch inquisition trials took place in the second half of the 17th century where the tribunal had 56 victims burned at the stake. This dark side of the chateau is dealt with in a book by Václav Kaplický A Witches’ Hammer and in a film of the same name by Otakar Vávra.
