Prácheň Region

Prácheň Region

Vodňany: The Czech Venice

The Prácheň region is a land with rich history, numerous small monuments, mysterious castles and noble châteaux.
A living region that has many forms and faces – picturesque villages with maintained folk customs and traditions, as well as remote gamekeeper’s houses amid rustling forests full of blueberries and mushrooms, or quality crafted products and services with “Prácheň regional product” certification. The landscape interwoven with ponds, woods and fragrant meadows provides space for many sports activities as well as quiet holidays. You can gallop through the region on horseback, cruise along the Otava River, ride a bike along marked trails, and hike in the shade of ancient oak trees along the pilgrimage routes leading all the way to St. Anne. Refresh yourselves with beer from regional breweries, sample fish specialities or visit one of the many cultural events.
