Cesky Krumlov    Budweiser Budvar

One of the best preserved historical towns in Central Europe. Located over deep meanders of the River Vltava (Moldau), it is well-known for it's almost "fairy-tale" castle, narrow streets and overall medieval  impression. The town was first mentioned in documents from 1253. The castle which is a fine mixture of architectonic styles from 13th to 19th century inhabits an outstanding collection of artefacts from nobility life over these ages. Aside multiple culture treasures, the downtown inhabits the Egon Schiele Art Centrum.  

The whole town is on the UNESCO's List of World Cultural and Natural Heritage.

The Rimov Reservoir is located at the Malše River, south of Ceske Budejovice. Completed in 1978, it serves as a drinking water supply, power plant and flood protection. The  47.5 m high dam holds 34 mil. m3 of water spread over 210 ha in a V-shaped (canyon-shaped), mostly forested valley. Outflow of water from the reservoir to the river can be released from five horizons of the water column, based on actual requests of the River Authority. The reservoir is one of the key study locations surveyed by the researcher from Hydrobiological Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.
