Bus/Train Prague to Rozenberg

Postby Bertos » 25-Apr-08 0:00

Hi,

Does anyone have any details of the train or buses that go from Prague to Rozemberg (South Bohemia). Timetables, price, etc.

Any details would be much appreciated.
Thanks

Use IDOS. You will get both times and prices there.

Place you are looking for is probably Rožmberk, little town with famous castle:

I have never been there, but planning a visit weekend after next :-), nice coincedence :-)

Thanks DJ,

That's exactly the place alright. I'm not over these until the end of May but just want to be clear how to get there. Actually staying in a Pesnion in Horni Dvoriste which is closeby.

Let me know how your trip goes.

So, I am back. I visited castles Telč, Landštejn, Nové Hrady, Rožmberk, Roštejn; Vyšší Brod monastery, town centers of České Budějovice and Písek, Lipno dam, Kleť mountain (skyline cableway, view-tower, and famous observatory), and visitors center of Temelín nuclear power plant.

Best of:

Castle - Rožmberk
Town - both nice

Surprise - Roštejn - nice castle in forests between Telč and Jihlava, I have never heard about it before, so I had no expectation - worth to visit.

Visitors center of Temelín really was one of the best, really nice exposition about nuclear energy and Temelín NPP, device to "unhide" alpha and beta radiation around us, and IMAX-style 3D movie.

I really enjoyed my trip, will post some pictures as soon as I process them.

If you need some info about places I visited this week, do not hesitate to ask.

Thanks for sending those photos djavatar.
Those are beautiful.
I really liked that colorful town in the bend of that river. Looking down from some upper floor.
I haven't seen a working nuclear plant in years. Those towers are quite a sight. I think that form of energy production will be getting more popular here again, with the higher prices on world oil and such.
I wonder what those structures are in front of that bridge. Are those to divert the force of flood waters away from the footings of the bridge?

No, they are there to stop the solid bodies which could block the way for the water or damage the pillars. Typically it is protection against ice blocks during spring floods. It is called “ledolam” (← led + lámat) in Czech and “ice-apron” in English.

I understand you needn’t it in hot and flat Florida :D.

The same structures are in front of the Charles Bridge.

Ah, I see....ledolamy.
The towns and cities are so picturesque.
All the tourists on the bridge.

Maybe Glenn can send you some pictures of the 'dolphins' we have in front of pillars on our bridge. To protect them from wayward cargo ships.
