A royal town thanks to Charles.

Kadaň owes a lot of its splendour to Charles IV. He granted it the status of a royal town and included it in the list of inalienable royal estate. When in 1362 Kadaň was gutted by fire, King Charles treated it in a truly regal manner. He supported the Kadaň folk in repairing the damage and in addition in 1366 he granted it home rule. Quite a strange thing is that until that time Charles had never visited Kadaň. A fact that changed in 1367, when he personally presented the residents of Kadaň with permission to hold annual fairs. A few years later he arrived again and pleased the Kadaň folk once more, when he allowed them to plant vineyards. It seems as if the spirit of Charles IV continues to dwell in the town. Pay a visit to the local castle, where Charles used to stay. And if you come on the last Saturday in August, you will be able to witness how the town commemorates Charles’s visit every year.
