České Budějovice



 

Situated on the Vltava River in the south of the Czech Republic, České Budějovice is the region’s administrative and cultural centre; because of its beautiful historic inner-city it is also a favourite tourist destination.

In addition to its historical sights, the city is also famous for its beer-culture – the world famous Budweiser Beer is brewed here.

Dozens of splendid Renaissance style buildings, most of which date from the 14th century, line the main square, The Town Hall, which was originally erected in 1545, is one of the most characteristic buildings in the square; it was subsequently extended both in the 18th and the 19th centuries.

St. Michael’s Cathedral, at the corner of the square, dates from the 13th century - but it was given its present form in 1650.

The Gothic-Renaissance style “Black Tower”, recognised as a symbol of the city, also offers a wonderful view over the city.
