The centre of an ethnographically interesting region – Chodsko, obtained municipal rights in 1262 from King Přemysl Otakar II. One of very few municipal castles in the Czech Republic has remained here since the Middle Ages. Today, the castle of Chodsko houses significant ethnographic collections.
A remarkable dominant of the town is a cylindrical leaning tower of a rectory church. The square is elongated and surrounded by rows of old burghers´ houses with Baroque and Classicist facades. On the square the Chodsko festivities take place every year, celebrating the local folklore specialities. Chodsko is one of few regions in Bohemia where folk tradition has been preserved and flourishes to this date.
