České Budějovice

Elegant townhouses gathered around one of the largest squares in Europe, an idyllic salt store and a brewery cooking up the original Budvar beer – this is České Budějovice, the capital of South Bohemia.

State Chateau of Hluboká

The neo-Gothic jewel of South Bohemia is often described as the most beautiful Czech castle. Built in the 13th century as a royal guardian castle, it went through a series of reconstructions that changed its original gothic appearance. In the 19th century, the last owners, the Schwarzenberg family, led the final transformation, inspired by Windsor Castle. You can explore its numerous courtyards and terraces and take a walk around the surrounding landscape park with its pristine gardens.

Mon 11 Sep


The pilgrimage town of Nepomuk is the birthplace of the most famous Czech saint, St. John of Nepomuk. You will find statues and crosses dedicated to St. John of Nepomuk all around the country. The dominant feature of the town is a majestic Baroque church devoted to the saint, and designed by the famous Baroque architect Kilian Ignatius Dientzenhofer. Your taste buds will appreciate an exquisite culinary experience at the Švejk restaurant at the Hotel U zeleného stromu. The restaurants offers modern Czech cuisine, and home-reared Angus beef.

Pilsen – the home of the Pilsner beer

Words such as pils, pilsner or pilsener are known around the world. Our thanks goes to the brewery in Plzeň for giving the world this legendary lager.
