Long Description:
The castle was founded prior to the year 1289 by Jindrich of Brandýs and changed owners over the centuries; the last owners were the Žerotíns in the years 1559 to 1636, and afterwards the castle was abandoned. Visible today are remnants of the walls and cellar spaces.

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

Hrad byl založen pred rokem 1289 Jindrichem z Brandýsa, behem staletí menil majitele, posledním rodem, který je mel v letech 1559 až 1636 v držení, byli Žerotínové, poté zpustl. V dnešní dobe zde naleznete zbytky zdí vcetne sklepního prostoru. Hrad mel predmostí, predhradí, prední a zadní hrad, chránily jej tri suché príkopy. Mezi majiteli se vystrídali páni z Boskovic, Kostkové z Postupic, Pernštejnové, Žerotínové, Valdštejnové a Parishové. V pol. 16. stol. se hrad uvádel jako pustý, byl opraven, ale za Žerotínu definitivne opušten. Dnes tady vidíme tri príkopy, krovím zarostlé základové zdi na predhradí, nekolik obvodových zdí, torzo veže a sklepy hradního paláce.
