vyšší brod

monastery vyšší brod
the southernmost point of the Czech Republic
We recommend visiting the southernmost point of the Czech Republic. It is located on the territory of the defunct municipality of Radvanov, in the cadastral territory of Dolní Drkolná, part of the town of Vyšší Brod (South Bohemian Region, Český Krumlov District) on the Czech-Austrian border.
The place is marked by a tall granite stone with a commemorative plaque, an information board, a border stone, a box with a stamp and a wooden stake marked "the southernmost point of the Czech Republic".
waterfalls st. Wolfgang
Don't forget a walk around the waterfalls of St. Wolfgang near Vyšší Brod. They are located on the smaller Vltavica and are actually extremely high cascades. Only some branches and steps of the upper "waterfall" can be called a real waterfall. You can get here along the Opatská path from Vyšší Brod following the yellow tourist sign. It is less than 2 km from the city center.
čertova stěna
Among the most visited places is also the Devil's Wall, i.e. a wild rock escarpment with granite boulders. An interesting legend is associated with this area - the devil tried to prevent the construction of a monastery in Vyšší Brod, but he failed, and in the end he lost his power, so he had to drop a boulder that he wanted to throw into the Vltava. Balvan was supposedly a sacred place of the ancient Slavs.

Rožmberk nad Vltavou

castle Rožmberk nad Vltavou
The local castle is first mentioned in writing in 1250. It was founded by the son of Vítek from Prčice from the Vítkov family. The town in the foothills was founded in 1262 by Vok from Rožmberk. Earlier, however, there was a settlement on the path from Netolic to Linz in the places of the lower Vltava ford. It then merged with the newly formed town.
In 1302, the Krumlov branch of the Vítkov family died out and the estate was taken over by the Rožmberk family. This family transferred its seat to Krumlov, but continued to maintain Rožmberk. After the death of Peter Vok v
in 1611, ownership of the estate passed to his nephew Jan Zrinski, later it was taken over by the Švamberk family.
But they own it only for a short time, because it was confiscated from them in 1620 for their participation in the estate uprising. The estate was taken over by the French noble Buquoy family, who owned it until 1945.
