Jindřichův Hradec is a town in South Bohemia with a well preserved and carefully restored historic core, which is dominated by the Jindřichův Hradec State Castle and Chateau. There are a large number of monuments in the town that are visited by thousands of tourists, mainly in the summer. The historic core of the city is mostly made up of smaller houses, underlining the character of a small South Bohemian town. It is a varsity town that is vibrant and highly cultured; moreover it is surrounded by beautiful countryside.
The town lies on the main Prague – České Budějovice route, 140 km from Prague and 50 km from České Budějovice. It has good bus and train connections from the major cities. The town has a parking fee system and you cannot avoid paying for parking in the centre. We recommend that you park in the streets and squares around the historical centre, it is far cheaper than parking right in the centre on náměsti Míru. The ideal means for exploring the town and its surrounding is undoubtedly by bike.
