Southern Bohemia (Jižní Čechy)

South of Prague. A beautiful area with cozy towns that look like they were taken out of a fairy tale. Don't miss Český Krumlov, one of the many locations in the Czech Republic that are protected by the UNESCO. Walk around Jindřichův Hradec or České Budějovice (make sure you try the original Budweiser), spend an afternoon in the picturesque Třeboň and its surroundings. The whole area is known for its pretty man-made lakes that are used for growing fish. The traditional Christmas carp come from there, too.
