A considerable part of the area is covered by forests and ponds, which are often part of the protected areas and biospheric reservations The position of the region predetermines its cultural heritage – the cultural impact of the rough Germanic and Anglo-Saxon north met here the fine art of the Italian Renaissance masters. Among the most beautiful cities belong Česke Budějovice, Český Krumlov, Jidřichův Hradec and Tábor that are worth to visit. If you wish to spend a pleasant holiday, South Bohemia should definitely be among places you will choose from.


The town of České Budějovice is the economic and cultural metropolis of South Bohemia. The town was founded in the 13th century and the regular plan in view of the town, whose centre is dominated by a large quadrate main square, is the height of the medieval town planning in Bohemia. Nowadays the main square of Česke Budějovice is lined with baroque burgess houses and arcades. In the 19th century the first horse-drawn railway from České Budějovice to Linz (Austria) became the European unique railway of its kind.

The town of Český Krumlov is called the pearl of South Bohemia. The historical centre of Český Krumlov has rightly been listed in the UNESCO world cultural heritage since 1992. The Castle of Český Krumlov – one of the biggest castles in the Central Europe - is definitely worth visiting. Brisk tourism and advanced services make Český Krumlov a top tourist destination.

Jindřichův Hradec is the natural centre of South-East Bohemia – with its typical panorama of the castle and the stately home high above the Vajgar pond. The ancient historical town of Jindřichův Hradec is a popular destination for holidaymakers. The castle here is well worth visiting, but so is also the Regional museum, which houses the biggest moving crib (Nativity scene) in the world – known as Krýza’s crib.

Tábor is the second biggest town of South Bohemia. The foundation of the town in the 15th century is closely connected with the Hussite movement and Jan Žižka. This strong historical tradition shows up to the present day. In the Middle Ages a network of underground tunnels was built under the town, some of which are open to public. One of the sights includes the water reservoir Jordán, which is the oldest reservoir in the Central Europe.
