The castle Jánský Vrch, the only accessible historical monument in the Jeseník district, is dominating the city's historical zone, together with the landscape park. It stands on a rocky hill above the city of Javorník, which you will find at the northest edge of North Moravia, in the former area of Silesia. Its history has begun probably already in the 2nd half of the 13th century. At that time, a castle was built in an advantageous spot above the Javorník settlement.
Since 1348, the castle has, with some smaller breaks, been part of the great area belonging to the Bishop of Wroclaw (Breslau).
In the year 1959, the castle Jánský Vrch was borrowed to the state and now is under the administration of the National Monument Institute in Kroměříž.
