Excursionist

Between Jihlava and Havlíčkův Brod you will find the small picturesque town of Polná. It used to be one of the most important Moravian towns, but due to several fires its importance declined. Today you will find several interesting sights here, including a castle and a monumental church. Polná is definitely worth a stop.

Column with a sculptural group of the Holy Trinity

We start our tour of Polná on Hus Square with a beautiful Baroque sculptural group. You can park comfortably here.

Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary in Polná

We are slowly moving to the most impressive building in Polná – the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. The local tower is 64 meters high. The church can be seen basically from everywhere

Under the church

Under the church you will find a nice fountain. Even baroque interiors are worth it. If you don't mind dozens of stairs and the weather is good for the views, be sure to climb the lookout tower and look around the surrounding highlands

Polná Chateau

The biggest attraction for tourists, however, is the local castle Polná. There is also a museum and a few predators in cages. From the castle there are nice views of the city center
