The château in Zruč nad Sázavou has evolved over the centuries, starting out as a medieval castle, which was later rebuilt as a Renaissance, Baroque and Classicist residence, until it was finally modified in a Historicist style towards the end of the 19th century. Its history was most significantly influenced by the noble house of Kolowrat and the Schebek family. Following the large fire, the château was rebuilt into its current neo-Gothic form.
Today, walking through the château interior is like taking a fascinating stroll through time, since each room is furnished in a different style – from antiquity all the way to art nouveau. There is a Museum of Boating near the castle, featuring a range of historic and modern water craft.
