Not only a wonderful home but also a wonderful environment. It is not for nothing that Lake Lipno is one of the top attractions in the Czech Republic. It is a great place for an active holiday. There is plenty to choose from among numerous activities. The indoor pool is very popular, especially because of its child safe design. There is a riding academy for beginners up to advanced. There is an 18-hole golf course with a wonderful view of the lake and surrounding mountains. You can rent clubs and practice your swing on the driving range. Experience cycling and mountain biking in a different way: through the woods. There is a summer toboggan run of more than 1 km that will really get your adrenaline pumping! You can fish in Lake Lipno or on the Vltava River (the Moldau). With over 100 km of roads and cycling paths you will not have time to be bored! The large water surface of the lake is a natural challenge for sailors. You can rent boats of all sizes. If you would like to learn to sail, there is a sailing school that provides lessons. Mountain climbing can be done in the surrounding mountains. In the somewhat wider environment there are a number of interesting sites and places you can visit. For example, there is the white castle of Hluboká - 5 km from the city of České Budějovice - beautiful not only outside but also inside. You will be amazed at this brilliant structure built in 1250. Another beautiful castle is that of Rozumberk which dates from the same period. After 200 steps up the English tower, you will be rewarded with a stunning view of the romantic setting. České Budějovice is known worldwide for Budvar or Budweiser beer. The name and the brewery's reputation draw visitors from all over the world. The layout of the city has the shape of a chessboard. In the monastery beautiful frescoes can be seen. In Masné krámy (the meat market) you can sample the wonderful local cuisine. From the dominant 72-meter-high Věž Černá (Black Tower) you have a splendid view of the city and its surroundings. In the 1 ha square there is Samson Fountain, one of the largest in the Czech Republic. The Lannova is a pedestrianized area where you can do some shopping and then enjoy a drink or a meal. The town of Český Krumlov is also a must. It was built around a castle on the banks of the meandering Vltava River (the Moldau). The medieval town is so well preserved that it is on UNESCO’s world heritage list. So close to the border means you can visit Linz in Austria and Passau in Germany. A day in Linz is sure to be fun: walking around, riding around with the Linz City Express, visiting the Pöstlingberg with its attractions and tasty markets, botanical gardens and zoo. Passau on the Danube is known as the Bavarian Venice. It is also a lively university town.
