Visit České Budějovice: Your travel guide

Things to do in České Budějovice
Hluboká Castle
Constructed in the 1200s, picturesque Hluboká Castle has taken many forms in its 800-year history. Its current guise, remodelled in the 19th century, was inspired by England’s Windsor Castle. Snatched from its owners during WWII, Hluboká was later reclaimed by the government and opened to the public. Get lost in the hedge maze, appreciate the architecture or marvel at the vast art collection on show.
Premysla Otakara II Square
Almost as old as the town itself, Premysla Otakara II Square has been the hub of České Budějovice for centuries. Renaissance and Baroque structures line each aspect, with the impressive Town Hall dominating the southwest corner. The ‘erratic boulder’ – an oddly-shaped cobblestone marking the old gallows – is found by the fountain. Cross it at night and legend says you’ll never find your way home.
Black Tower
Make your way up Black Tower’s 360 steps and you’ll find České Budějovice stretching out beneath you in every direction – a just reward for your efforts. First built in the 1500s, the tower serves as a belfry for nearby St. Nicholas Church, and contains five bells: Bumerin, Budvar, Marta, Oktáva and Maria.

Jihočeské muzeum, beer and shopping were very good. 45 min to Český Krumlov with a magnificent castle and an old centre.

This Czech town is very cute yet small. We didn't have any problem finding something to do. We just needed to walk around. It was fun!

A nice city with lovely old town. Food is generally too heavy in CZ but we ate fresh and tasty meals during our stay. However, nothing for vegetarians. :-)
