The location of the hotel Gong offers many opportunities to visit the surrounding areas.

We recommend you visit:

HUKVALDY – the birthplace of the composer Leos Janacek. There is a memorial and his family house. Hukvald beginnings are linked to the castle from the 13th century.

Every year knights’ festivals, theatre shows and musical concerts take place in the castle area – the most famous one is the International Music Festival Janacek Hukvaldy.

PRIBOR – the birthplace of Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis. There is a museum and a memorial hall dedicated to him.

CASTLE STARY JICIN –  the castle ruins stand on the Starojicky hill which due to its strategic location in the area in the 12th century prompted the construction of a guard house guarding the connecting route from the Adriatic Sea to the Baltic Sea, also known as the Amber Road. In the 13th century the guard house turned into a border fortress guarding the road to Poland. In the tower is located an exhibition of the weapons of the period and documents about the castle and the estate Stary Jicin. From the castle is a magnificent view of the region around the Moravian Gate, Oderske vrchy mountain range and Beskydy Mountains.

CASTLE KUNIN – baroque Kunín castle was built between the years 1726-1734. At the turn of the 18th and 19th century, the castle became a modern education institution, which was also attended by Frantisek Palacky, Czech historian, politician and writer, who is considered the founder of modern Czech historiography. Visitors can explore the rooms, bedrooms and classrooms of the chateau school and the tour finishes with a visit to the chateau attic with a unique Baroque chimney system.
