The castle was built along the Luznice River on a site of an old settlement
at the end of the 14th century. The Hussites annexed the castle in
1420 and founded a fortified town here.
A dense network of cross streets, the Bechynska Gate and the Kotnov
Castle Tower demonstrate the former military character of the town.
The late Gothic Deanery Church on the Tabor Mountain dominates the
town. A Gothic town hall, which contains a unique large hall and an
entry corridor to the Tabor underground, and the Jordan artificial
lake rank among valuable monuments from the Middle Ages period.
The Jordan Lake dates from 1492 and is one the oldest in Central Europe.
It includes a Renaissance water tower. A number of Renaissance citizen
houses with typical curliness gables are located in the urban area.
The pilgrimage Cathedral in Klokoty dates from the baroque period.
Also a remarkable technical monument is worth to mention. It is the
electrified railway line between Tabor and Bechyne, which was built
by Frantisek Krizik at the beginning of the 20th century. It was the
first of its art in the former Austria-Hungarian State. The town attracts
the visitors by the heritage of the Hussites´ movement, which has
become the historical epoch of European significant. However Tabor
is also a modern nature centre of the region.
