One of the greatest lures of the town of Bartošovice and the entire Moravské Kravařsko Region is the chateau, a dominating landmark of the Oder River Basin.
The complex of this pseudo-renaissance chateau with its magnificent park lies right on a nature trail
. The trail passes through Bartošovice and introduces visitors to all points of interest in the town, from the local ponds, to Dům přírody Poodří wildlife centre with it wildlife protection station, or to the chateau itself.
Inside, the chateau captivates with its original wooden furnishings, particularly its impressive staircase and coffered ceiling. The original chateau library serves as a ceremonial hall. The exhibit on display introduces the history of the Moravské Kravařsko Region, a region where the vast majority of the population prior to the Second World War was of German descent. One of the exhibits is dedicated to the history of warfare and offers an illustration of what a military hospital had looked like.
Tourists can learn about famous local figures, which include, among others, John Amos Comenius. The Teacher of the Nation worked in nearby Fulnek
as the last administrator of the Czech Brethren there. Another important figure whose work is presented to tourists is Johann Gregor Mendel. This native of the nearby town of Hynčice-Vražné is considered to be the founder of the scientific field of genetics.
In other areas of the chateau, visitors can learn about the history of warfare, and can browse the exhibit depicting a military hospital.
The chateau is situated in a grand chateau park, dominated by a London plane tree
. This 36-metre tall tree is considered to be the the tallest plane tree in the Czech Republic, and one of the tallest in Europe, as well. The tree is linked to the story of the undying love of local professor Josef Meinert and Countess Josefina de Canale. It is for this countess that the tree is nicknamed "Josefínin platan" ("Josefina's plane tree").
The chateau's educational trail leads further to the Dolní (Lower) and Horní (Upper) Bartošovice ponds. Another historical structure situated nearby is the baroque architectural gem, Kunín Chateau
