It is a town which each year hosts hundreds of musicians of all varieties and tens of thousands of those who come to listen to them, a town admired by lovers of architecture and attracted by historians researching its remarkable past, a place where sgraffiti and frescos on the decorated gables of patrician houses reflect Italian inspiration and which looks the same as it looked in the Middle Ages, and the chateau belongs among the jewels of Moravian Renaissance architecture.

It is offered to attend a folk festival being held from the end of July till middle of August full of music, theatre performances and concerts, a performance of a group presenting historical fencing or a trip by a historical steam train.
