Just opposite the river Vltava is the old town connected with the Chateau by a small bridge. Stepping into its streets it’s like stepping back in time. The towns still has its original medieval charm which is clearly visible on every corner, house and tavern. The Church of St. Vitus which holds the Tomb of the Rožmberk Family is a must see site. If you really want to sink in and lose yourself, than a nigh walk by the illuminated five-story bridge that links the Upper Castle with the chateau theatre is also a must.
(The Rožmberk`s were one of the wealthiest families in the kingdom that controlled a large part of Sothern Bohemia. They highly contributed to the advancement of this whole region by establishing towns and residents.)
