Blatná



blatna_1.jpgBlatná is a friendly little town with pleasant streets and cozy shops, but unfortunately, but unfortunately it´s marked by an unaesthetic urban development planning next to the historical city. The small city of Blatná was already mentioned in documents in the 13th century. The city originates in a reinforced fortification around which developed a town. The fortification later grew out to be a castle.

The city is also known as the "rose city". This is because of the old and strong tradition of cultivating roses by plant-breeder Jan Bohm. In the summer you can see and smell the beautiful flowers everywhere in a chateau park.

The most prominent part of the town is the Castle Blatná. The castle stands on the shore of the river the Lomnice. Originally the castle was surrounded by water but in the 19th century it was rebuild in the Gothic style and the castle-moat disappeared.

The park around the chateau Blatná is most impressive place in the city. It is open to public. Apart from water scenery the biggest attraction are the fallow deer with their spotted coat. The deer are free-roaming and friendly.
