Pardubice Chateau - Eastern Bohemia Museum

Zámek Pardubice - Východočeské muzeum

Zámek čp. 2, 530 02 Pardubice

The original fortress likely dates to the 13th century; in the 14th century it was rebuilt as a Gothic castle. The Pernštein family subsequently rebuilt the castle as a Gothic-Renaissance chateau. This chateau was purchased in 1560 by the royal chamber and ceased to be an aristocratic residence. The significantly dilapidated chateau was repaired by the Museum Association after 1918.
