The magic atmosphere of Orehov Castle

Orehov Castle was founded in 1638 on the site of a former fortress, first mention of which can be found in the first half of the 16th century. The extensive complex of buildings in form of letter «U» also includes large patio with originally preserved fountain. The most striking and unique features of this castle are undoubtedly the high towers that seem to be “growing” out of the building corners.

The Baroque reconstruction of the castle was implemented in the first half of the 17th century. In 1682 the castle has been acquired by the noble Magny family who implemented the building of a baroque chapel, which has determined the fate of the entire complex. From a simple castle Orehov turns into spiritual place, housing the monastic hospital of the local Celestial Order. Each monastery, including Orehov, serves not only for religious purposes, but also for the daily activities: vast agricultural lands provide monks with all necessities.

The castle changes its owners after the World War II, thus the monks were replaced with the new seat for Unified Agricultural Cooperative. Some part of the premises was occupied with the State Security School.

The building served as a warehouse for pharmaceutical company in 1988. In early 2000s new owner buys the castle and turns it into hotel.
