Holašovice



holasovice_1.jpgHere time stood still for centuries. Throughout the whole of South Bohemia you will find farms build in the typical South Bohemian Rural Baroque style. But nowhere will you find such a large collection of such houses as in Holašovice.

It is, because of that, more than understandable that Holašovice is included in the World Heritage List of UNESCO.

Holašovice is a small village, about 15 km west of České Budějovice and on the north border of the nature reserve of Blanský Les.

The so called Rural Baroque is a mixture of Baroque, Rococo and Classicistic building styles.

In Holašovice you do not really see the masterpieces of this architectural style. Because there are many buildings close together in the same architectural style, you will get a good impression of how the village must have looked like in the 19th century.

When you visit České Budějovice a visit to his village is worth the extra drive!
