Interesting places in Ústí nad Orlicí


Hernych´s Villa Hernych´s Villa

» Hernych´s Villa


In its restored condition it reflects the floral Art Nouveau architecture style of the original owner – textile entrepreneur Florian Hernych. Despite the fact that the villa has been used since 1951 by different organisations, it has not suffered any devastating reconstructions. The place benefitted from the presence of the local art school in 1955–2003. After extensive reconstruction works in 2006 it has been home to the Town Museum.

Museum collections:
The Town Museum in Ústí nad Orlicí is a culture-educational centre for museum and homeland work documenting the history of the town and surrounding regions.

The third topic that has had a strong tradition in the region of Ustí nad Orlicí is textile production. The museum focuses on domestic weaving, warping and cloth-making. We should also mention a collection related to this topic, a large collection of fabric and textile products.

In addition to these main areas, the Museum documents the history and ethnography of the town and its environs.
