The preserved corner tower of the fortification walls, now called Štáfl’s Bastion, has been used since the middle of the 20th century as an exposition about Otakar Štáfl, an important native of Havlíčkův Brod, and was modernized with the support of the Czech Ministry of Culture. The visitor can discover the work and importance of the painter Štáfl in Prague, the High Tatras and Havlíčkův Brod on several panels. Part of the exhibition are mainly dioramas from the life of Karel Havlíček.
The town fortifications were built between 1310-1350. Only one corner tower has been preserved from this wall – the Štáfl bastion – with a part of the fortification near the grammar school. The fortification walls with bastions on the eastern side of the town centre and in the south to southwestern part of the town by the river Sázava have been preserved from the parkan wall since the end of the 15th century.
