Passau medieval town
This Bavarian city is situated on three rivers. The nooks and crannies of Passau's well-known old town reflect its seven-thousand years of history. Passau, the city where the rivers Danube, Inn and Ilz meet, is a young old city time and again casting its spell over people.

Prachatice medieval town
Prachatice was founded at the turn of the 13th to the 14th centuries on an important commercial route, called the "Golden Trial" , which led from Bavaria to Bohemia, bringing prosperity to the town. This town at the foot of the Bohemian Forest ranks among the best-preserved urban complexes in this country, the historical centre has kept its Renaissance appearance inside the ring of the still existing fortifications. For this reason, the town was proclaimed an urban conservation area in 1981.
The place worth seeing there is the sundial, the largest in Central Europe. What makes it remarkable is not only the size and horizontal location, but especially its conduct. It is the birth place of Saint John Nepomuceno Neumann.

Vyssi Brod monastery
Come to see the ancient monastery with its church and baroque monastic library. The monastery dates back to the 13th century. The Cistercian Abbeys Vyssi Brod (Hohenfurth) in Bohemia is one of the last Cistercian monasteries that once existed in the historical lands of the present-day Czech Republic. Their cultural impact is inseparable from the history of these lands.

Rozmberk castle
The Rozmberk castle was founded in the first half of the 13th century. The castle was opened to the public in the middle of the 19th century as one of the first museums in Bohemia. From time of the first owners, the Rosenbergs, survived the Renaissance graffito decoration of the outside facades with beautiful painted decorations of the interiors.

Cesky Krumlov castle and medieval town
UNESCO NUMBER ONE IN EUROPE
Cesky Krumlov is situated on the River Vltava with the ancient town center on one bank and the castle ground on the other bank. The landmark of the panorama of the town is Cesky Krumlov Castle which consists of two parts: the Lower castle with a round tower (built in the 13th century) and the Upper castle, built in the 14th century. The castle was expanded several times. Later, the owners made some Baroque modifications: the chapel was rebuilt, masquerade hall decorated and a new manor theatre built. After Prague Castle, it is the second most outstanding castle in the Czech Republic. The magnificent interiors of the castle are open to the public (historical interiors--two sight-seeing routes). The castle´s viewing tower and exhibition rooms are also open to the public. You can also see the Museum of the famous painter Egon Schiele in the town.

Hluboka castle
Overlooking the River Vltava , there is the monumental structure of the romantic Hluboka Castle. The Castle was built around the middle of the 13th century and later purchased by the Schwarzenberk family, it was rebuilt several times. The latest modification in the Romantic style of the so-called Winsdor Gothic carried out between 1839 and 1871 transformed Hluboka into a representative residence of the Schwarzenberks. Representative interiors contain rare collections of Flemish tapestries, weapons, furniture and paintings. This is the most beautiful castle in the Czech Republic.

Konopiste castle
This castle was the last residence of the archduke Franz Ferdinand d´Este, who was assassinated in Sarajevo in 1914 along with his Czech wife, the event that started World War I. It houses valuable art collections and the third largest armoury in Europe. A viewing of the private rooms of Franz Ferdinand´s family is a highlight and must be booked in advance.
