An elegant, Late Renaissance chateau is situated right in the centre of the town. Apart from several typical castle rooms with rich interiors, this is more than just an ordinary tour. It is a seat of the Blansko Museum which can show you the history of ironworking, the only such museum in the Czech Republic. Other exhibitions display, for example, measuring equipment and speleology. Interactive exhibitions and special tours have been prepared for families with kids. You can play games that include solving puzzles, and there is an archaeological playroom.
If you come to Blansko in the summer when the weather is nice, you may want to try the pleasant local summer aquapark. There are lovely forests all around Blansko, so you will enjoy beautiful views while swimming. Swimming in a more natural ambience is offered by the Palava Reservoir on the hill above the town. (Moreover, it is free of charge, there are trees providing shade around the water and a snack stand is present, too.)
Among the sacred buildings in Blansko, the wooden church of St. Paraskevi on Rodkovského Street in the centre is no doubt the most interesting. It was brought here from as far as Carpathian Ruthenia in the past! Originally an Orthodox church, it still accommodates religious events.
Blansko is sometimes referred to as the gateway to the Moravian Karst. It is an excellent starting point for wandering through the mysterious caves and beautiful nature above the earth’s surface. And it is not the only great trip you can make from Blansko. As a couple, with kids or as a bunch of friends, take a walk to the well-preserved Nový Hrad Castle Ruins hidden in the woods. The castle has been gradually renovated over many years and there is a castle tavern open on weekends. In addition to that, you can come to the weekend fair held several times a year – the Easter one is probably the most popular.
