Litomyšl was established around the trade route that connected Bohemia and Moravia at the end of the 10th and beginning of the 11th centuries. The dominant feature of Litomysl is the monumental Renaissance castle dating from the years 1568 – 1581. The buildings of the castle precincts are not only exceptional for their architectural refinement, but have also inscribed themselves in history as the birthplace of the Czech national composer, Bedrich Smetana. The Litomysl Castle was damaged by fire in 1775 and repaired during the 1790s.
