  • In the center of the square Premysla Otakar II is located is one of the largest fountains in the Czech Republic the fountain of Samson with size 17 feet in diameter. It is decorated with four gargoyles and four statues of atlantesów holding a large stone shell and the Foundation of the fountain is a shell with sculpture Samson fighting with a lion. The author of the fountain is the sculptor Josef Dietrich and master stonemason Zechariah Horna. For those interested, I will mention that all statues fountains have been replaced by copies and the originals are kept in the Town Hall.

  • Cute square with a small fountain in the middle. Cute, friendly staff. No need to compare with other places. Just relax and enjoy. Look carefully at the facades of the houses on the square. These you won't have seen before.

  • One of the most famous parts of the old city. Nice to visit in the Christmas time. Here you can have a lot of shopping on Christmas market, hot wine, local beverages like sausages and trdelnik. It will also make fun for kids - they can take round about and also there's an ice rink, relatively small but enough for children fun time spending.
  • You can't go to town and not stop here. Especially interesting at Christmas time. Lots of great food and drinks to try.
  • 300 years old fountain built as a source of water for a growing city (the original statues are displayed in a museum, we're looking at a very nice copy) placed at a beautiful square
  • If You search for quiet little towns off the heavily beaten tourist path than Cesky Budejovice is the place. Charming town square, great architecture. Quiet.
  • Did you know that Samson´s fountain project was almost twice expensiver than whole cityhall construction ?
