Info: The valley of the River Morava at the Napajedla Gate was an important strategic point dating back to primeval times. Situated on a trade road, the town itself originated as a station for watering horses. In the 1800s, the lords of Stockau took credit for the widespread development of the town, among other things, by founding a spa based on the use of sulphur springs. The cream of Viennese society used to visit the local horse-breeding farm. Located in the Napajedla urban monument zone, Masaryk Square is dominated by a Neo-Renaissance town hall dating from 1904. The town`s Baroque architecture is represented by the chateau surrounded by a park and St Bartholomew`s Church. The Radovánek and Radovan (with a tradition spanning 50 years) folk ensembles see to it that folklore remains alive in the town. Held in August, the Napajedelské chodníčky folklore festival presents a mixture of cultures from the Moravian Wallachia, Moravian Slovakia and Haná regions. In September a torch procession passes through the town as part of an event called the St Wenceslas` Evening. The Pahrbek Centre with a swimming pool on a cut-off meander of the Morava provides relaxation as do the nearby lakes.
