We made a jump on the way from South Bohemia back to Prague, just 30 minutes from Hluboka. Late october with colorfull trees, confluence of Vltava and Otava rivers and the medieval castle. It was an overvelming atmosphere.

Překvapivě velký hrad s prohlídkou bez průvodce. Romantické místo, které stojí za návštěvu! The castle is placed on the conflunce of rivers Vltava and Otava. There is an amazing view. We were surprised how large the castle is; tour is not conducted and price reasonable.
