Points of interest atound Třeboň

Třeboň, as well as the entire area surrounding it, is one of the most interesting and beautiful destinations in the whole Czech Republic thanks to its well-preserved nature and rich cultural heritage. Třeboň lies on a very flat land area, so its terrain is ideal for walking trips and bicycle rides.

This region, though sparsely inhabited, is a good example of a working coexistence between nature and humans. The influence of mankind has made itself very evident over the centuries, but it still doesn´t leave a distracting impression in the landscape around Třeboň.

The industrial revolution bypassed Třeboň; you won´t find any industrial establishments in the city, which makes the unique countryside architecture with its renowned rustic Baroque elements that much more noticeable. This region is so unique that you won´t find an aquaculture system that takes advantage of the natural character of the landscape quite as this one does not only in the Czech Republic, but possibly in the world. The integration of the aquaculture system into the local natural wildlife has been carried out in such a sensitive manner that all the original biotopes have remained, existing for the past 800 years in their original form. It is no coincidence, then, that a large part of the Třeboň surroundings was added to the list of protected landscape areas in 1979.


The Třeboň – Hrádeček educational and healt trail

Length 3,6 km | not difficult walking trail with wooden fitness gear | Suitable for bicyclists
A trail leading around Třeboň. The starting point is the parking lot just behind the Hradecká Gate next to the square. At the beginning, the trail leads along the Golden Canal around the brewery. At the old Schwarzenberg barn, the trail splits off from the Golden Canal and continues through the Šustova tree-lined path over the Wet Fields all the way to Hrádeček. From here, it goes over Nová Cesta (New Path) trail along the Black Canal (Černá Stoka) and the railway tracks back to town Třeboň.

Mokré louky (Wet Meadows) – An area of wet meadows and hay-barns (northeast of Třeboň, to the left of the E551 road). This is a remarkable locale with an area of 450 hectares. Its terrain level is lower than that of its surroundings and it has a characteristic peat-bog foundation which can be up to several metres thick. When the Rožmberk fishpond used to be larger, the area was very often flooded. The absence of a firm foundation required specific agricultural maintenance – the hay was stored in the wooden hay barns until the winter. Only then, when the soil was frozen, could it be transported away. Some of the hay barns are still standing (some of them originate in 16th century) and are considered a cultural monument.
