The ruins of the castle Oparno

The history of the castle, founded before 1344 by the lords of Vchynice and abandoned before 1530, was not very dramatic.

However, the small castle on a long ridge above the romantic Oparenské Valley was not conceived as a military fortress. Today, on the other hand, its easily accessible ruins, consisting of a massive mantle wall, a small courtyard and semi-infested cellars, are a popular tourist destination.
