Long Description:
On the left bank of Metuje river on the rocky promontory is possible to find remnants of walls of the Výrov castle. It was a small castle designed for defense rather than for habitation, probably founded in the 13th century.

===========================================

Na levém brehu Metuje na skalnatém ostrohu je možné nalézt zbytky zdí 4-5 m vysokých hradu neznámého jména udávaného v pramenech jako Staré Hrady. Výrov je pouze jméno vycházející z lidového názvosloví. Jde o mensi hrádek nevelký urcený spíše k obrane než k obývání, založen pravdepodobne ve 13. stol.
