Top 5 Attractions

  1. The 13th century New Castle, actually locally called Old Castle (Stary Hrad). What we call the ‘New Castle’ is our early 1800 Buquoy palace in Windsor style.
  2. The Novohradska Forge, a historic but still functional, active blacksmith workshop with living quarters.
  3. The protected historic town centre with many examples of a new use for old buildings, including the historic apothecary, former Buquoy residence, monastery and church.
  4. Novohradska Museum: the local town museum and its outdoor border museum.
  5. Buqouy Tomb: the pseudo-gothic style early 1900 Buquoy family tomb.
  6. Theresa Valley: we would like to give you a discount, but its already for free. It is a landscape park in the valley of the Strobnitz river below Nove Hrady. It was created in 1756 and restyled as romanticism a century later. Since 1949, the park is a national natural monument.

BEWARE, there are TWO Nove Hrady’s
in the Czech Republic. Our Nove Hrady is in South Bohemia, equidistant from Prague and Vienna, on the Czech-Austrian border. The historic town is small but offers a high-quality visitor’s experience.
