Museum of Forestry, Hunting and Fishing – Ohrada Castle


Falconry, Ohrada

Falconry is a way of hunting that has been used for over four millennia. Visitors can learn everything about these predatory birds, their lives, and the way they hunt in our permanent exposition in the Museum of Forestry, Fisheries, and Game Keeping in Ohrada.  

The use of raptors’ specific and highly developed abilities is a unique way to hunt, which is also why falconry was in 2010 included in a list of intangible heritage of the UNESCO.

An exhibition dedicated to falconry had opened in the Ohrada branch of the National Museum of Agriculture in 2012. It presents not only the history, but also modern trends and other interesting facts related to this unique way of hunting.
