The historical town of Třeboň is located in a beautiful area full of ponds and forests. It is famous for the stunning Renaissance and Baroque buildings, relaxing spas and a plethora of cultural events. The architecture of the historical centre reflects the era of the fish pond farming industry that developed there in the 16 th century.
The history of Třeboň can be traced back to the 12th century, when a little village was established in the area. It was owned by Vítek from Prčice of the Vítkovci clan. Třeboň developed into an important town during the following two hundred years. It experienced an even bigger growth when the Rosenberg family took over the town in 1366. The biggest progress came in the 16th and 17th century during the reign of the last lords of Rosenberg – brothers Vilém and Petr.
The square is the most prominent part of the town's historical centre. The focal point of the square is the Old Town Hall Tower, which offers a spectacular view of the area. Another important building, the Barouqe Theatre of J.K.Tyl from the 19th century, hosts performances of the best Czech theater companies.
The Třeboň castle is one of the largest castle complexes in the country. Formerly a Gothic castle, it was rebuilt in the Renaissance style during the reign of the House of Rosenberg with some buildings rebuilt again in the Baroque style during the Schwarzenberg era. The castle is surrounded by a park and protective walls. It is currently used as a depository of the State regional archive.
