Miletín, a town in the Miletín Basin, to the northeast of Hořice.

It is the year 1124 when King Vladislav I. welcomed Saint Otto, the Bishop of Bamberg at a water castle. The village subsequently arose in the area beneath the castle. It was the property of the Order of the Teutonic Knights from 1241 up to 1410, during the Hussite Wars. Underground rooms and corridors have been preserved from this era. In later years, it had a number of owners from the House of Wallenstein. In 1560, the village was raised to the status of a town which burnt down in 1846 and was renewed after the fire.

The baroque château was built on the site of the water castle between 1693 and 1701 by the Hradec architect K. M. Klupf.
