A walk round Hluboká nad Vltavou
Hluboká nad Vltavou does not only offer its visitors a visit of a castle. The town charms by its wonderful surroundings that are ideal for some walks round.
The castle is situated in a place, where a river leaves the lowland and flows through a deep walley. You can not only see beautiful gardens of big english park that can be found near the castle, but also you may walk round (or drive) on the roads bordered by the old oaks that remeber even wellknown parties of the nobility. Picturesque forests, fresh meadows where you will be alone with the sun, ponds and streams with stony bridges make unrepeatable mosaic that is the real essence of the south Bohemia.
You will find Alš´s southbohemian gallery in the former riding-hall, brougham-hall and stables. You may admire large collection of gothic plastics and table paintings from south Bohemia from the era of 13th to 16th centuries and a collection of Dutch paintings from the era of 16th to 18th centuries. Alš´s gallery is famous for its collection of gothic madonnas and serves as a traditional place of classical music concerts.
