Velke Losiny

Velké Losiny is a village and municipality in Šumperk District in the Olomouc Region of the Czech Republic. It covers an area of 46.5km2, and has a population of 2,832 and lies approximately 10km north-east of Šumperk, 52km north of Olomouc, and 188km east of Prague. Its most popular tourist sites are the château, the spa and the handmade paper mill, the oldest in Europe.The chateâuBuilt from 1581-1589 on the site of an earlier Gothic fortress by Jan the Younger of Žerotín, the chateâu and its estates remained in the possession of the ancient Moravian dynasty of Žerotín for more than 300 years. The chateâu consists of three wings overlooking the courtyard with three floors of arcade galleries and is crowned by a narrow octagonal tower. Although Jan was infamous for his ruthlessness towards his subjects, bullying them into woring using methods that were exceptionally cruel even for those days, his descendant Přemek II was worse; in 1662 he had the three ringleaders of a peasant rebellion beheaded. At the turn of the 18th century the Renaissance buildings were extended with a further three, also arcaded, Barroque-style wings, to which were added a Baroque-style garden featuring romantic little structures and statues.At the end of the 18th century the Žerotíns fell into debt and began selling their estates. In 1802 they had to sell the family seat in Velké Losiny to the Princely Family of Liechtenstein, in whose possession it remained until 1945.
