Thanks to its strategic position the people settled here and created a community from which became a small town in 14th century, and successively a town in 19th century.
The profiteers from Central Europe arrived here, used rich cultural programme, so used healed sulpur spa and visited with pleasure local stud-farm. Here there were kept, and are keeping now, mostly full-blooded stud-horses. Son-in-law of Count, Aristides Baltazzi, took care especially of development of this stud-farm. In the course of 120 years of existence of this stud-farm there were born here many of horsing-races champions.
In 18th century Napajedla was in possession of Rotall-parentage and thanks to their activity it succeded to enlarge several times the area of the seat. The planes for the construction were made by Vienna Court Architect Frank Anton Grimm. According to his plans, the castle received a face of two-storeys´ three-wings building in a form of letter „U“, closing the courtyard with entering two-armed staircase. At present, the castle is in a private ownership, not accessible for public. You can admire it from outside at least walking in castle-garden, which is open for public.
Except castle and stud-farm, it is worth to visit a square with Neo-renaissance Town Hall, decorated with a statue of St.George, ceramic dial-plate of tower´s clock and nice window panel. If you are of an opinion that the historical dates are available enough and you are hungry, would you visit recreation area Pahrbek, situated in an blind-arm of Morava-river, near to pasture-land Na Pěnném. You find here camping place with a bathing place, where it is available an accommodation and refreshment in local restaurant as well.
