Welcome to Ceske Budejovice - the largest town in South Bohemia founded in 1265 by King Premsl Otakar. It is a town with an interesting history and notable places of interest. One of them being the Premysl Otakar II square, the largest old town square in the Czech Republic which contains the ornate Samsonova Fountain; as well as the Budvar of Budejovice brewery founded in 1895, which has spread the fame of the town to many countries all over the world. But not to be confused with the American version with a similar name.

Tourists who come to the city may also visit the expositions of the Southern Bohemian museum, galleries or Ales's South Bohemian Gallery.

Surrounded by castles and countryside this is an ideal starting off point for the more adventurous traveller, or ideal for a relaxing break. Ceske Budejovice is the centre of South Bohemia and with it's slow pace and relaxed atmosphere and interesting architecture make it a worthy stop, especially as a base for exploring southern Bohemia or for those heading on to Austria.
