South Bohemia

The writer Ota Pavel once wrote that when someone heads south from Prague, he always knows the moment when he's entered South Bohemia. They say this is a completely different country, a different kingdom, where the grass is different, the fish are different, and the tapped beer is different. There is certainly some truth to this statement. But South Bohemia, of course, is not merely its world famous beer... MORE ...

This is a land of fishponds, carp, and deep forests full of wild mushrooms. Canoers and fishermen alike sing the praises of the Vltava and Lužnice Rivers. The flat basin areas around České Budějovice and Třeboň are a bicyclist's paradise, while the hills of the Šumava are perfect for skiers in the winter. No other area in Bohemia can boast such a number of castles, fortresses, manors, and country houses. Even the decorative and picturesque village building style has its specific name – South Bohemian Rustic Baroque. In short, Ota Pavel was right – once you're in South Bohemia, you'll know it immediately.

Come and see for yourself!
