   The site of the castle of Velhartice belongs to exceptional works of the Czech castle architecture. It was established on the turn of the 13th and 14th century. Its dominants are the ruins of an old Gothic palace called Paradise House and the tower Putna standing opposite to it which had both defensive and residential character. Both these parts are connected by a mighty stone bridge with four ogees. Next to the Paradise House stands a late Renaissance palace called after its builder the Huert wing. The site includes the building of beer brewery, relics of walls and utility buildings.
