Nové Město nad Metují.

De stad Nové Město nad Metují (vlakbij Nachod) valt onder Monumentenzorg en is een van de mooiste steden uit deze streek. Nove Mesto nad Metují is a Czech town in the region of Hradec Kralove, and is part of the district Náchod. Nove Mesto nad Metují employs 10,180 people. The town of Nove Mesto nad Metují (near Nachod) falls under monuments care and is one of the most beautiful cities of the region. Náchod lies almost on the border with Poland, in the foothills of the Eagle Mountains and has a huge castle complex.

Nové Mesto nad Metují was founded on August 10, 1501 by Jan Cerncický from Kácov. However, this resort on the river Metují existed long before. There discoveries are made, for instance a bronze pin and graves with ceramics from 800 to 100 BC. During the excavations that lasted for years, led by Jan Cerncický at least 60 homes were built for the researchers. On June 21 1526 the city fell prey to a major fire. Most houses were rebuilt immediately, so there was again place for work and trade. Jan Cerncický gave the wood to rebuild for free, but for new buildings for the whole city was no money. In 1527 he sold the village to the family von Pernstejn. Vojtech von Pernstejn wrote exactly how the city had to be rebuilt. The rebuilding took 5 years. The city got the look of Venetian Renaissance. When rebuilding the city's the ground plan was preserved. But between the walls and buildings and gardens there was more space created as a ring around the encircled town. After rebuilding by Pernstejn there were 39 houses instead of the previous 60. This city plan within the walls is not changed. You have to drive for 950 km to visit it, but from your holiday home it is nearby.

In het centrum van deze in verhouding vrij jonge stad ligt een bijzonder fraai plein, dat omringd wordt door zestiende-eeuwse huizen met booggalerijen en mooie renaissancegevels. In the center of this disproportionate relatively young city (1501) is a particular attractive square surrounded by sixteenth-century houses with arcades and beautiful Renaissance facades. From the center there is a covered wooden bridge from 1910 to the palace. The middle of the bridge consists of a 14 meter high tower. The bridge is richly decorated with folk motifs. Predominantly in the Renaissance style castle originated in the early 17th century. After the Thirty Years War it came into the possession of Walter of Sestie, one of the murderers of Waldstein (see Cheb). Between 1655 and 1661 only baroque accents were added to the building. In the nineteenth century the castle was abandoned and fell slightly in decline. In 1908 the castle was bought by a textile baron. He let restore the building by the Slovak architect Dušan Jurkovic in the Art Nouveau style. This transformation left a mark mainly on the interior. Also the park was renovated. On the terrace wall two dozen Funny dwarfs found a place. They were made by Matthias Braun workshop to a design by the Frenchman Jacques Callot. Also this castle was confiscated by the state. Unlike most of the castle and palace the textile baron was allowed to live here, because he had saved the castle from the decay with money he inherited not only, but had largely earned. In the castle you can admire many works of art. Not only paintings by Czech masters, but also ceramics, sculptures and tapestries are part of the collection.

Náchod liegt an der Grenze mit Poland, am Grenze von das Adlersgebirge und hat ein Großes Burchcomplex.
