The township Koprivnice, which originated as a settlement around the Sostyn Castle, had maintained its rural character for a long time. In 1960s and 1970s the quiet place started changing due to enormous development of automobile production and the related intensive, not only, residential construction. A lot of original buildings had to make a place to town development. Fortunately some of them have been preserved. One of the oldest houses is the former Fojství. The year it was built is unknown, however it was mentioned for the first time in 1576. Today you can find here the Fojství Museum, where you can see the history of the town and its inhabitants. The pseudo-gothic church of St. Bartholomew built in 1894 or two villas of Šustala’s family in Edward Beneš’s park are also impressive. In one of them you can find the Lachian museum with expositions devoted to production of clay decorations and to a local native painter Zdeněk Burian. We can also mention original burgess-school (1908) in the Masaryk square or Bonishe’s villa from the year 1891. Modern buildings are also architecturally interesting for example the hotel Olympia.
