Long Description:
Bouzov is located in the picturesque countryside of corners of the highlands Drahany. Starting in the late 15th century it was in the hands of the Teutonic Knights.

The castle, which is near Olomouc, acquired its present appearance after an extensive reconstruction in the late 19th century. The project and reconstruction plans were drawn up on the basis of the requirements of the Archduke Eugene Habsburg, Grand Master of the order, who also funded the entire construction from his private resources.

The castle is fully furnished and equipped. The furniture comes mainly from the private collections of Archduke Eugene Habsburg and partly from the collections of the German order. Modern equipment was then tailor-made specifically for the building. The most valuable part of the castle is the Neo-Gothic chapel, fitted with a Gothic altar and decorated with the tombstones of the masters of the Order from the years 1395 to 1515 The Castle Armoury, the original Gothic hall of the old castle, is equipped with samples of weapons.

The coat is located above two main gates to the castle.
