It is one of the largest castle complexes in the Czech Republic, which was built gradually during almost eight hundred years of history. It was originally a small hunting lodge of Moravian margraves. It was first mentioned in 1213. Veveří as we know it, a real stone castle, was probably built before the middle of the 13th century. He held the position of the place of royal supervision over the settlement of the territory upstream of the river Svratka. The castle was enlarged after the middle of the 14th century during the reign of the Moravian Margrave Jan Jindřich – the younger brother of Emperor Charles IV.
