This castle located outside of Brno on the banks of the Brno reservoir has been renovated in the past years. It is a worthwhile place to visit, particularly in good weather. There are often fairs and cultural events held within the castle walls.

Veveří Castle (Hrad Veveří) is an originally ducal and royal castle some 12 kilometres away from Brno city centre, Moravia, Czech Republic near the dam. A guided tour was a great idea to know more about the history. Really worth seeing.

We'd been told that up at the castle "Burcak" is being served at this time of the year - it's a fermented drink, in between grape juice and wine - but that applied only to weekends, and we found the castle and its premises closed....More
