Welcome in Royal Kadaň

One of Northern Bohemia’s most picturesque towns is situated where a primeval settlement once was located by the former wade over the Ohře river. The royal town of Kadaň will impress you as a modern, hospitable and pleasant town, as a destination of many tourist trips.

Kadaň obtained the status of a free royal town around 1259, and the local castle became a seat of the Kadaň Region´ s burgrave in 1277. Kadaň had its heyday during Charles IV´s reign. The historical core of the town is still decorated by an amazing number of gorgeous burgess houses, ecclesiastical buildings and remnants of medieval fortifications. And that is the reason why the historical centre was declared town monument preservation in 1978. The former Franciscan monastery from 1473 can undoubtedly be considered Kadaň’s most valuable object. Today it serves as a municipal museum with the town’s oldest cellar valves and the Church of Fourteen Holy Helpers. The Franciscan monastery was proclaimed a national cultural monument in 1995.
