A holiday rental Ceske Budejovice, the largest city in South Bohemia and the oldest in the country is a great holiday choice if you've been to Prague and would like to experience more of the beautiful Czech Republic, or simply if you prefer to go on holiday a little off the beaten track. A Ceske Budejovice holiday rental makes a fantastic and unusual romantic holiday destination! The city is easily accessible by train from Linz and Prague, as well as by car.
The city centre is small enough to be explored on bike or on foot; this way you can also take in more of the architecture and the atmosphere. Head to the central square, Premysla Otakara II Square, named after a 13th century Bohemian king, and the nearby Black Tower, the city's most famous landmark, which rewards those who climb its 255 steps with the best panoramic views across the city. Just a short journey away from the city is the town of Cesky Krumlov, a historical hotspot which is worth a visit.
Ceske Budejovice by any other name...
Ceske Budejovice is also known by another more familiar name: Budweis. The city's brewing history stretches back to the 13th century, and it is now the home of the Budweiser Budvar Brewery, producers of some of the world's most well known beer. Tours around the brewery run daily, and include a glass of draft beer at the end. The city is home to another smaller and older brewery, Budejovicky Mestansky Pivovar. Beer fans will also want to visit the Staropramen Brewery in Prague, and the western Bohemian city of Plzen, the hometown of Pilsner – both cities can be visited as day trips from your Ceske Budejovice holiday rental. Czech beers are best enjoyed alongside traditional local dishes!
