Dobronice u Bechyně - castle ruins

About 6 kilometres north-east of Bechyně, on a hilly rock above the river Lužnice, there is a Gothic castle originating from the early 14th century.

The most significant owners of the castle were the Rožmberks who had it expanded at the beginning of the 16th century. Later on the castle was used as a summer residence for the Jesuit College of St. Kliment from the Old Town of Prague, but after the Jesuits left the castle in 1727, it fell into disrepair. Nowadays you find romantic ruins of walls and a dominant round tower on the site. The tower is visible from far away and in its shadow there is a camping site where canoeists floating down the Lužnice River or hikers tramping through the region can stay overnight. The castle is temporarily closed due to reconstruction.
