The valley's chief landmark is the majestic Kuks Hospital and its grounds. Here all human sin and righteousness is laid bare, as is a dance with Death and past medical treatments. It was once a retirement home for war veterans and the elderly.
Visit the Baroque apothecary to find out how wolf's liver or powder from mummified corpses were used. Be a pharmacist in the Pharmacy Museum. Take in the Dance of Death – not to be found anywhere else, and peek into the Count's tomb. Sample the finest Czech wines the cellars have to offer.
