What to do
Golf in south CzechOur holiday house is located about 3 km from the Bechyně Golf Club and is therefore suitable for golf lovers. Due to the relatively low prices of the golf club, I also recommend for guests who just want to try golf or who want to get a "green card".
If the golf club in Bechyně is not enough, try Golf Club Hluboká nad Vltavou about 35 km away. The 18-hole course will satisfy even demanding players.
City Táborthe first settlement of the town of Tábor is, according to archaeological finds, proved for about 400 years before our date in the so-called Hallstatt period. The first periodical mention of the town settlement dates from the 13th century, when the settlement of Hradiště was situated on the site of the present old town. The city of Tabor itself, including its name, was known to be founded in 1420 by the Hussites. The rich history of the city can be found at every turn and the city is definitely worth a day trip. Try catacombs from the 15th Century that pass under the main square (entrance is from Museum on the main square "Zizkovo namesti").
The town of Bechyně
The city of Bechyne is located approximately 5 km from our house. The first signs of Bechyne settlements date back to the first century. Before our date when this place was inhabited by the Celts according to archaeological findings. The first Slavic settlement dates back to the 9th century AD.
The history of Bechyně Castle dates back to the 13th century, when Přemysl Otakar II had built his castle on the site of today's castle. In the 16th century, the castle was rebuilt by family of Rožmbergs into a castle and later owned by several other noble aristocratic families (Štrambergs, Paars). At present, the chateau is owned by Josef Štáva.
The castle is well maintained and accessible to the public, and in the former brewery there is an exhibition of ceramics of the South Bohemian Gallery, which is definitely worth a visit.
