The ruin of Hukvaldy Castle is one of the largest in Central Europe and the second largest in Moravia. The stone castle was built in the 13th century by Arnold of Hückeswagen and it was never captured. It was only destroyed by a fire in the 18th century and it is currently partly restored. The tower affords a broad view of the Moravian Gate and the whole Odra River valley all the way to Ostrava and the main range of the Moravian-Silesian Beskydy Mountains.
A game preserve park with fallow deer and moufflon is also a great attraction. The life and work of the music composer Leoš Janáček is inseparably bound up with this place - the castle surroundings are annually a scene of the International Music Festival Janáček in Hukvaldy.
