Bouzov Castle

Bouzov Castle is an early 14th-century fortress first mentioned in 1317. It was built on a hill between the village of Hvozdek and the town of Bouzov, 21 km west of Litovel and 28 km northwest of Olomouc, in Moravia. The castle has been used in a number of film productions lately, including Arabela, Fantaghirò, and Before the Fall.

At present the castle is fully furnished and equipped. The most valuable part of it is the neo-gothic chapel with its Gothic altar and tombs; also the castle armoury, which is in one of the few original rooms with preserved Gothic vaulting, deserves close attention.
