The dominant feature of Litomyšl is the monumental renaissance castle dating from the years 1568–1581. The buildings of the castle precinct are not only exceptional for their architectural refinement, but have also inscribed themselves in history as the birthplace of the Czech composer, Bedřich Smetana.
On the elongated square, which is one of the largest in the Czech Republic, stands a town hall of gothic origin and a series of Renaissance and baroque houses, many with arcades and vaulted groundfloor rooms. The chateau complex was included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1999.
