The Open-hearth Kitchen

The partial reconstruction, which took place in 2006-2007, brought a completely new discovery near the western defence wall. An open-hearth kitchen with a large chimney, a bread oven and a drying-kiln was found behind the newer retention wall. Following the reconstruction, visitors now have a chance to see the interior of the castle kitchen as it looked in the 17th – 18th centuries.

According to the historical and structural research, it was built next to the original castle wall probably in the 16th century. The kitchen includes a well-preserved chimney hood, a preparation room, and a bread oven with a drying-kiln from the 18th century. There is also a remarkable system of smoke exhaust vents.

This unique building is situated between the 2nd and 3rd courtyard and it is accessible only through the gate between them. The Museum of the Central Otava Region, now the administrator of the premises, has made a great effort to bring it back to life and present a factual example of a period kitchen and its facilities.
