Go on a journey into the memory of the Štramberk Tower
Welcome to this exciting journey into the memory of the Štramberk Tower – a journey that will reveal many of Štramberk’s deepest secrets, stored away in the Tower’s memory for over seven centuries as it quietly watches over the town below…
A small mountain town in the middle of the Štramberská vrchovina (Highland), stretching across slopes of Zámecký kopec, Kotouč, Bílá hora, Libotínské vrchy and Červený kámen, along the foothills of the Beskydy Mts., called „Moravian Bethlehem“ for their picturesqueness. Štramberk was founded by the Moravian margrave Jan Jindřich Lucemburský (1322-1375), son of the Czech King Jan Lucemburský (1296-1346), younger brother of the Roman emperor and Czech king Karel IV (1316-1378), on December 4, 1359 by giving the settlement (first recorded in 1211) surrounding the castle the statute of a town.
Štramberk Castle offers a huge range of possibilities for all kinds of events – company meetings, team-building events, celebrations, social events, and much more… All in the beautiful surroundings of this 13th-century gothic castle…
