Pisek

The town is located along the Otava River. Its name originates from gold-bearing sand, which was paned here from the river. The stone bridge above the Otava River, which dates from the second half of the 13th century (it is the oldest preserved bridge in the Czech Republic), ranks among the historic highlights of the towns. The castle, which is set into a town fortification, dates from 1479. It is richly decorated with murals with motives of the Three Kings Adoration. The Prachenske Museum is established in the castle now. A baroque town hall dates from the middle of the 18th century.
