The old stone city walls in Polička are some of the best preserved in Central Europe. Don’t pass up the opportunity to stroll along their walkway – the main walls encircle the entire historical core of the city. The massive fortifications were built during the reign of King Charles IV, specifically after his stay in Polička. A tour guide will point out to you many interesting facts about these Gothic fortifications. In ulička Na bídě (Misery Lane) you will see some early-19th-century houses of the poor, now reconstructed, which were built right up against the city walls.
