Tourist region Toulava
The region on the borders of South Bohemia and Central Bohemia only 60 km from Prague which is in close proximity to the towns of Tábor, Bechyně, Milevsko and Sedlčany, has always attracted visitors by its rich history, the number of sights, romantic nooks and pristine landscape. It is a place where you can find the real soul and heart of the Czech nation. This place is called Toulava.
Into the heart of history
This is the place where Czech and world history were written. Hussite town Tábor, the cradle of Eropean reformation, later became the symbol and source of courage for the whole Czech nation. The Vítkovci dynasty that originated in a small town Sedlec-Prčice had a long history of influence on South Bohemia. The region from Tábora to Us… abounds in unique sights – picturesque ruins of castles Kozí hrádek and Borotín, Bechyně castle, churches and monasteries, historical towns and technical monuments such as the oldest electrified railway in the former Austro-Hungarian Empire.
Into the heart of region
Nowhere is the landscape so distinctively Czech. Green hills speckled with herds of cattle, valleys hiding villages where you feel like the time has stopped, deep forests with centenerian trees – all these marvels just beckon you to take a walk or a bike ride alongside a well marked net of touristic paths. The calm Lužnice river pushes its way from Tábor to Bechyně through a steep canyon and invites to canoeing, paddling and boating, rocks above the river attract rockclimbers and the Vltava river and the Orlík dam serve as an ideal place for all kinds of water sports.
Into the heart of people and their traditions
The biggest Hussite festival Táborská setkání, South Bohemia folklore festivalin Kovářov where still survive traditions of the ethnographic region Kozácko, or the biggest Shrovetide carnival in Bohemia Milevské maškary allows you to experience traditional charm of times long gone.
