Vranov nad Dyjí is a château in the homonymic town of Vranov nad Dyjí in the South Moravia (South Moravian Region), Czech Republic. It lies on the Dyje (Thaya) river, 3km north from the Austrian border close to Hardegg.HistoryVranov's location was first mentioned by Cosmas of Prague in 1100 as a border sentry castle (oppidum castrum Wranou). It was built by the Dukes of Bohemia to defend the southern border of Moravia against raids from the neighbouring Austrian March. Until 1323 the castle was in royal hands but in that year king John of Bohemia pawned Vranov to a powerful Bohemian nobleman, the viceroy Jindřich of Lipá.In 1421, during the disturbances of the Hussite Wars the Bohemian noble family of Lichtenburg took control of the castle and the contiguous market town. In 1499 it definitely passed on to Lichtenburgs as hereditary possession by the king Vladislaus II of Bohemia and Hungary. The Lichtenburg family held Vranov for almost a century, until 1516.

  • The state chateau Vranov nad Dyjí seems to grow out of the town of the same name. It's beautiful, as can be seen in the photo.  more »
  • It is fantastic place to visit this castle in Czech republic guided tour takes 1,5 hour if you use both possibilities  more »
  • Just stunning, inside and out. The views are spectacular and the interior jaw-dropping. Feel like an oligarchy for a day, and look out upon the town in the valley below, or gawk at the ten 8' tall stairs in the hall of ancestors... It's worth the trip.
  • Beautiful place, nice interior. It was amazing to walk round. Relaxing and peaceful time.
