Ewa Kurzak 2006-10-29

(Population 6,000, altitude 427 m above the sea level, the Otava River)
The town Horažďovice is situated in Western Bohemia in the foothills of the Šumava Mountains.
The history of Horažďovice has been closely connected to the history of renowed Prácheň. The fortified site of an ancient settlement in Prácheň used to be an important strategic point under the reign of the Přemislids. Horažďovice became famous for pearl musels breeding.
There is much to see in Horažďovice. The most important cultural sights include the remains of the town fortification from the 13th century. The square adjoins the extensive building of the Baroque Castle which provides the shelter to museum and the gallery. The fresco decorated large castle hall is a scene of the concerts of the music festival “The Castle Musical Summer“. The sports area Na Lipkách offers sports facilities, including a swimming pool, tennis courts, and a water sports camp.Visitors are welcome to take a pleasant walk in the natural reservation Ostrov laid in the style of an English park.
Horažďovice is served by frequent trains running between Plzeň and České Budějovice. Visitors travelling by train are advised to change at Horažďovice Předměstí for Klatovy bound trains calling in Horaždovice Town.
We wish every visitor an ejoyable stay!
