Southeastern Bohemian has its specific charm. Intersected with creeks, rivers, and countless lakes over the entire region, the countryside rises from the flatlands in the west towards the wooded hills known as the Czech Canada, as if wishing to show off many beautiful phenomena of the nature on a tiny piece of land at once. Situated amidst all the natural beauty is a genuine gem:
A town overlooks the Vajgar Lake, whose gorgeous panorama of a Gothic castle and Renaissance chateau are reflected in the water like in a mirror, as though a silent witness of the bygone glamour of its former aristocratic inhabitants.
A town on the 15th meridian, with the Assumption of Virgin Mary Provost Church and a massive tower with a view of the entire region.

The complex of buildings forming the state castle and chateau of Jindřichův Hradec is the third largest in the Czech Republic. Spread out on over 3 hectares of land, the Castle has 320 rooms, for which the Management of the state castle and Chateau of Jindřichův Hradec holds over 500 keyes. Its interiors contain about 10.000 fine art items and approximately the same number of books.
From an architectural perspective, the Castle was first built in the Gothic style, becoming one of the most prestigious buildings of its kind.
