Towns worth to visit

Brno

Brno, the administrative and cultural capital of the South Moravian province, is located within a diversified terrain at the confluence of the Svratka and the Svitava rivers. The oldest church in Brno, St. Peter and St. Paul's, stands on Petrov Hill. Originally a Romanesque basilica of the of 12th century, it became a Gothic structure during the 14th century. During the first half of the 18th century it was refashioned by Moritz Grimm and furnished in contemporary style with the fine sculptural work by Andreas Schweigl. Its Gothic appearance was restored in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Franciscan church of St. John, in Brno, is also of medieval origin. It contains a sculptured Madonna of the 14th century, wall paintings from 1504 and baroque frescos by Jan J. Etgens. The architecture of the Dominican monastery and its church of St. Michael dates from the first half of the 13th century, though its present appearance is the result of the Baroque alterations carried out in 1655-1679 by Jan Erna and Domenico Martinelli. The oldest panel painting of the Virgin known to this country is to be found in the brick-built church of the female order of Cistercians, the church of the Assumption founded in 1322 by Queen Eliška Rejčka.

České Budějovice

The royal town, founded in the 13th century, is the center of the South Bohemian region, presently holding a hundred thousand inhabitants. All the houses on the large square and many in adjacent streets have arcades. A Black tower, 72 meters high, finished in 1577 dominates the town. The town hall (see picture) received its present shape in 1730. An important work of South Bohemian Baroque is the Samson fountain on Budějovice square.

Český Krumlov

The South-Bohemian district town of Český Krumlov is situated at the foot of the Blanský forest on the Vltava river, a Protected Area. In 1992 the town was registered on a protected site list by UNESCO. At that time, the town had celebrated seven centuries of its existence, which speaks for its rich history and its aristocratic families -the Lords from Krumlov, later the Rožmbergs, Eggenbergs, and Schwarzenbergs. The unique architecture of the historical center of the town, the castle, as well as, the large number of cultural events, bring more than a million visitors to Krumlov every year. These are renowned in the world the same way as the town is itself.

Hradec Králové

The town was preceded by a Slavonic fortified settlement, replaced later by a royal castle. The development of the town went on without interruption through the entire Medieval period, so that by the 14th century Hradec already ranked among the most architecturally rich Czech towns. The largest sacral urban structure is the Church of the Holy Spirit, a triple nave tower-like pseudo-basilica, founded by the Queen Eliška Rejčka in 1307. Between 1654 and 1666 the Jesuits built the Church of Assumption of the Virgin Mary according to a design by C. Lurago and fitted it with valuable Baroque furnishings. Not far from the Jesuit college, M. A. Canevalle built a bishop's residence in 1709 - 1710, and the Marian sculptural group in the middle of the square is only a few years younger.

Jihlava

The present city still maintains its original fortifications. All in all it contains 213 protected monuments. The most significant buildings are the Minorite Monastery and church of The Assumption of the Virgin which was completed after 1250. The Dominican Monastery (with the church of St. Cross) is a little younger. It was built in the Gothic French style. The church of St. Jacob was started before the year 1250. The precious architecture of the city of Jihlava is mostly hidden from outside view and is located in its large square (3,6 ha). There are all together 14 well-preserved houses from early Gothic time. There are other stone houses built in the proximity of the square. The catacombs, created by the joining of the cellars, are interesting examples of the Gothic building style. Rebuilt after several fires, Jihlava acquired a Renaissance look and its architecture was enriched by the so-called "Jihlava covered yard". Also the "upper halls" and the "lower halls" of the courtyards are historical jewels worthy to behold. Architectural and urban developments of the city were interrupted during the Baroque era which added a new veneer to most exteriors including the complex of Jesuit Colleges built between 1680 and 1727. Besides witnessing the architectural heritage, it is also possible to visit the Museum of the Highlands, the Regional Highland Gallery, the catacombs and the modern zoo.

Jindřichův Hradec

The beginning of the town dates back to the end of the 12th century. The town came into existence as a market colony near the border between Bohemia and Moravia. A member of the Vítkovec lineage, Jindřich (Henry), built a Romanesque castle called Hradec, whose owners later called themselves the Lords of Hradec. The coat of arms showed a golden rose with blue background. Dominating Jindřichův Hradec is the tall church tower called Assumption of Mary from the beginning of the 15th century. The Church's corner intersects with the 15th meridian. In the building of the former Jezuit seminary, one can now find the Regional Museum with its mechanical Bethlehem "Krýzov's crib". The state castle is, with its size, the third largest in the Czech Republic and offers three exhibit routes. Below the castle area by the river Nežárka, picturesque Koželuhy houses are preserved.

Karlovy Vary

The therapeutic effect of the Karlovy Vary springs has been utilized ever since the Middle Ages. The spa became a tryst of aristocracy in the 17th and 18th centuries. The town's most valuable architecture has its origin in this period as well, the Baroque Church of St. Mary Magdalen, built by K. I. Dientzenhofer in 1727 - 1736. Though, the spa's greatest upsurge occurred only in the 19th century when Karlovy Vary became world famous. The spa buildings, colonnades and pavilions were constructed in the mood of a sober Empirical and, later, Art Nouveau styles. The center of the present spa bustle in Karlovy Vary is a modern pavilion with the main Karlovy Vary spring, Vřídlo, and the Mlýnská Colonnade.

Kutná Hora

There is a former royal upper town, Kutná Hora, in the center of Bohemia, which was a challenge for even Prague due to its wealth and architectural imposition during the height of its economic prosperity. The town is dominated by the Temple of St. Barbora, the patron saint of miners. Its foundations were laid in about 1380, the hall triple nave was vaulted with circling vaults in 1547. The present typical tent roofs are the work of a purist restoration executed in 1884 - 1905. There are valuable artistic works of Medieval and Renaissance art, namely mural paintings, the altar of the Master of the Holy Trinity Altar (around 1480), sculptures and the late Gothic choir benches all placed in the temple interior. Vlašský Court stands in the town's southern section, a former mint named after the coiners called in from Italy. It has an irregular character with an entrance tower, a royal palace, and a court of masters of the mint. There are several other architecturally imposing churches standing in the town, which were founded in the 14th century, for example, the Parsonage Church of St. Jacob, with its characteristic high spire, and the Church of the Virgin Mary with a hall triple nave, finished in 1512. The most valuable Baroque building is the former Ursuline nunnery, designed by Kilian I. Dientzenhofer. The dignified Baroque interior hides the Church of St. Jan of Nepomuk, built in 1734 - 1750 according to plans by František M. Kaňka.

Litoměřice

The historical center of Litoměřice forms an impressive architectonic unit. Its historical part is predominantly influenced by Renaissance burgess buildings which are accompanied with Gothic objects subsequently growing in Baroque style (houses and fountains, Plague column from 1680-1685 by G. Broggio and A. Wald). The houses surrounding the town square have old, complicated and deep cellars even many storeyed ones. A part of the underground is reconstructed and open to public.

Olomouc

The oldest part of the town now occupies the area on which formerly stood an eleventh century castle. In its place the royal clan of Přemyslovci built in about 1110 the Cathedral of St. Wenceslas. During its last reconstruction, tall spires in the new Gothic style were added to the cathedral. Historically valuable is the town's so-called Romance Palace. Only a wall now remains of the palace with the Romance style, two-part and three-part sectional windows. Their masterful rendition reflects a high level of artistry and craftsmanship. The City Hall, formerly a mercantile house, dominates the spacious square. The house underwent adaptations as early as 1378. Following the substantial reconstruction at the beginning of the 17th century, the City Hall changed its appearance several more times, the last time in 1903. An astronomical clock is built into the alcove under the tower spire. Another prominent feature of the square is the Baroque pillar of the Most Holy Trinity. The stony monument with the exceptionally elaborate figurative decorations was designed by Václav Render. In addition to this particular sculptor, others cooperated on the completion of the monument. Of these, Ondřej Zahner and Šimon Forstner contributed the most. The pride of the town is also a singularly beautiful set of water fountains with Baroque sculptures.

Pelhřimov

The city of Pelhřimov was established in the 13th century at the site of a former village which belonged to the Řečice manor of the Prague bishops. Two gates and a bastion of the Medieval fortification have been preserved. The core of the city consists mostly by Baroque and Renaissance houses, some of which still have the original Gothic cores. The manor at the corner of the square was built by Adam from Říčany in the middle of the 16th century; the building was completely reconstructed during 1755 - 1770 and further adapted in the 19th century.

Písek

The town is characterized by many a deep rooted attribute: "the Prácheň region metropolis", "the town on the gold-bearing Otava river", or "the town of the Silver Wind". The history of the third largest South Bohemian town is very rich. Písek is mentioned first in the deed of the King Wenceslas I issued in 1243. Also, subsequent Czech rulers paid great attention to Písek. The town was built with real magnanimity, chiefly under the King Přemysl Otakar II. The second oldest bridge in Central Europe, the main historical point of interest of Písek dates back to these times. Worth the mention is also the Deanery Church of the Nativity of Our Lady, whose tower is a dominant feature of the town.

Plzeň

The city was established around 1295 at the confluence of the rivers Mže and Radbuza by the Czech king Wenceslaus II. It was however preceded by a Slavonic walled settlement in nearby Starý Plzenec. The shape of the city was designed generously with a large square and regularly measured blocks of houses. In the center of the square of Plzen grew in the 14th century a monumental building of archdeacon church of St. Bartholomew. Even before that the Minorite monastery with the church of Ascension of Virgin Mary was established in the southeastern part of the city. The most beautiful building on the square is the town hall from 1554 - 1559

Prague

Almost in the centre of the Czech Land Prague Castle, looking more like a fortified settlement than a medieval castle was founded by the Přemyslids in the 9th. century. One by one, under its protection, each of the Prague towns were established and grew. Prague flourished during the reign of Charles IV, and the Jagellon reign of the Gothic period enriched it futher. Prague gained fame for its Baroque period architecture, changign the character of a town which until then had been predominantly Gothic.

Slavonice

Thanks to its isolation which, among other things, is a result of economic stagnation, the southwest Moravian town of Slavonice has preserved its unique combination of Late Gothic and Renaissance town architecture. Some of the buildings contain remarkable interiors, such the murals of the Apocalypse dating from the mid-16th century, which can be seen in the former Lutheran prayer house in the Upper Square, or those on the western side of the Lower Square in a single-storied house dated 1543 - 1549.

Tábor

The south Bohemian Hussites built their fortified military camp on the site of an old castle above the valley of the Lužnice river around 1420 which soon evolved into a town. Its greatest construction development came about after 1437 when King Zikmund elevated Tábor to a royal city and provided it with numerous prileges. The construction of the town-hall was begun in 1440 (it was not completed until 1521) with unusually large central hall. Today there is a museum with the exhibition "The Hussites" in the building and a picture gallery of art of the Hussite museum of Tábor. At the entrance on the ground floor there is the entrance to the Tábor underground corridors which are open for the public in the length of about 800 meters. The panorama of the city is dominated by the church of transformation of the Lord on the hill of Tábor. The cathedral with netted vault from 1512 was provided with Renaissance gables and its high tower received a double dome in 1677. An adornment of the city are its townhouses with mostly Renaissance gables. The visitor can conclude his stroll through the winding lanes of the old town by climbing the only preserved tower of the original castle called Kotnov which offers view down to the city with its wide neighborhood.

Telč

The Gothic castle was built in the second half of the 14th century. Towards the end of the 15th century the castle fortifications were strengthened and a new gate-tower built. By the middle of the 16th century the medieval castle no longer satisfied Renaissance noblemen such as the cultured and well-travelled Zachariáš of Hradec. He had the castle altered in the Renaissance style. The ground floor was vaulted anew, the facade decorated with sgraffito, and the state apartments and living quarters received stucco ornamentation together with trompe l'oeil paintings and chiaroscuro in 1553. Telč came into the possession of Vilém Slavata of Chlum and Košumberk by intheritance. The counter-reformation brought the Jesuits to the town and they built themselves the church, Name of Jesus, in 1666-1667, according to the plans of Domenico Orsi

Třeboň

The origin of Třeboň dates back to the 12th century. In 1367 the Rosenbergs founded the monastery in Třeboň with the church of St. Jiljí. Approximately during this period the stronghold on the southwestern side of the town gradually changed into a small castle which was then considerably expanded before the beginning of the 16th century. During the period of the last Rosenbergs also the city changed its shape considerably. Beautiful townhouses in Renaissance style grew at the square, among the first the present hotel "White Horse" with a remarkable "fortress" architecture of the five story gable. The Třeboň town hall with additionally built tower dates about 15 years later (1563).

Ústí nad Orlicí

It is situated in the pictorial valley on the confluence of the Tichá Orlice and Třebovka rivers at the foot of the Orlické hory at 349 metres above sea-level. The town arose from an old Slavonic village called Oustí in the second half of the 13th century during the reign of Přemysl Otakar II. Now it has a grand old square with arcades and many typical dated houses. Most inhabitants of the town and nearby villages used to earn the living by agriculture and by home-weaving.
