Svitavy town

The town of Svitavy is situated in the south-eastern part of the Pardubice Region. Its history dates back to the 13th century, when the settlement was given town privileges. The historic centre with a number of arcade houses of different architectural styles ranks among one of the longest ones in the country. The dominant of its western end is the church of the Visitation of the Virgin Mary, plague column and St Florien’s Fountain. In the middle of the square, the former town hall and the oldest house – the House at the Moor’s – can be seen. The eastern end leads to the Ottendorfer’s House, a former library, with a concert hall as it is used nowadays. In the town, a number of sumptuous villas of wealthy citizens from the late 19th century can be found (Langer’s Villa, Sponer’s Villa, Budig’s Villa…)

As for free-time activities, the stadium with the nearby recreational area Vodárenský les and Patriots’ Park can be used. On the northern outskirts it is possible to visit natural area Brand with the pond Rosnička.
