Let’s start with the aristocratic sights. Boskovice is not a large town, but you will have no problem spending the whole day here admiring lavish places of residence. The ruins of a Gothic castle in the forest on a hill represent the oldest one. Be sure to head up there if you like romantic ruins. These are very well-preserved, you can see a roof every now and then. This historic site has not been left unmanaged, for the Mensdorff-Pouilly family is proceeding with its renovation and you can walk through a major part of the castle.
The Mensdorff-Pouilly family also cares for the beautiful Empire Chateau, which is lively not just inside, but also on its grounds which offer an interesting program, such as duelling swordsmen. The former residence of the counts from the Dietrichstein family houses the Museum of the Boskovice Region, where you can try to make ceramics as they did in ancient times or to write in the same way as scriveners did in the Middle Ages.
The local Jewish Quarter is one of the most well-preserved and, without exaggeration, the most interesting in the Czech Republic. Of the original three synagogues, you can only visit the Synagogue Maior today, which is beautifully painted with frescoes. Go and meditate at the third largest Jewish Cemetery in the Czech Republic or visit the mikveh ritual bath. You can try meals inspired by Jewish cuisine in the Makkabi Restaurant just a stone’s throw from the synagogue.
It is not all about historical sights. We also recommend the Wild West Town, where you can enjoy the old West to the max. What better place to stylishly savour cold lemonade or whisky than in a saloon? Performances take place here throughout the whole day, and the venue offers a bunch of other activities.
You can cool off in the Boskovice Aquapark or at the Červená Zahrada (Red Garden) outdoor swimming pool. Nature can be admired during a two-kilometre walk through the beautiful Šmelcovna Arboretum, where kids can find a zoo corner with pygmy domestic animals, you can buy some greenery for your home and of course enjoy some refreshments.
