Špýchar (grain store) at Střela

There is a single-storey grain store (Špýchar) located below the château at Střela, to the right of the road between Strakonice-Horažďovice. This building is built from quarried stone and has small windows. It dates from the 16th century.

Château Střela

Château Střela, with its Baroque chapel and the ruins of an old castle, is situated approximately 5 km from Strakonice. A castle, which had two sections, originally stood in this location and only the torso of the ruins reminds us of the upper section. The lower section, called the château, was converted into its Renaissance appearance in the 16th century. The château was modified into its current appearance by the Jesuit Order. A chapel, devoted to Saint John the Baptist, was added to the complex. After the order was dissolved in 1773, the manor was obtained by a study fund.

House No. 389 in Husova Street

This Art Nouveau style building from the beginning of the last century is interesting not only because of its construction but also for its fine-art quality. The former orphanage was built between 1911 and 1913, just before the start of World War I, and together with the neighbouring hospital it was the town's dominant and provided for its social needs. The house served as an orphanage until World War II when the occupation forces established a German school here. After the end of the war it was renamed as the District Children's Home.

Blatsko Farmstead (Blatsker Majorhof)

This is a part of the former large manorial farmstead. It was built by the road to Pracejovice, behind the western part of the castle.

The main driveway with volute gable is the most interesting element, with Maltese cross and an inscription reading 1693. The ground-floor buildings are located by the entrance. The courtyard has an enclosed rectangular layout. Today it is used as the office headquarters and warehouse of a trading company.   

Castle Granary

The granary is listed as a national heritage site. It was built prior to 1752 opposite the castle garden by the grand prior Václav Joachym Čejka of Olbramovice. The author of the project seems to have been an obscure builder from Prague named Anselmo Martino Lurago.

Bagpipes of Strakonice

Next to the Fezko building on the roundabout you can find the town's symbol: the bagpipe made by Ing. Pavel Pavel.

Copy of Stonehenge Trilithon

The model of Stonehenge in Strakonice is an imitation of one of the gates - trilithon from the ancient monument in actual size. Concrete blocks were used for the experiments, which aimed to reveal the secret of how the huge stones lintels were lifted and precisely positioned. The experiments were performed in 1991-1992 by Ing. Pavel Pavel, who was born in Strakonice.

Dubovec

Directly beneath the castle, on the left bank of Volyňka River, there used to be a colony of the castle's servant staff Žabokrty.

Here in Dubovec we can see the so-called palace that belonged to the Jewish merchant Stein. Originally there used to be a high round tower called "trucbašta" or "Tructurm".

Villa of Jiří Fifka in Lidická Street No. 514

The villa of Dr. Jiří Fifka is immediately next to the hospital. It was built in 1926–1929 in Purism style. It used to be one of the most modern structures in the region. The design was the work of architect Ivan Fifka from Prague, apparently a relative of MUDr. Fifka. The villa tells us much about the level of modernity acceptable in rural areas in the 1920s. Un-plastered brickwork and smooth plastering both can be seen, together with a robust hipped roof. The building also features elements that express the dynamism and romanticism of the 1920s.

House No. 131 in Kochana z Prachové Street

The building is located on the spot of the original house that belonged to Valentin Kochan of Prachov – a famous scribe, Prague New Town burgher and lands director at the time of the Estates' rebellion. After the rebellion was crushed, he was one of the 27 nobles who were summarily executed in Old Town Square on 21 June 1621. The noble house of Valentin Kochan belonged to the coat-bearing burghers who had been granted their coats of arms before the Battle of White Mountain. The street bears his name.

Gymnasium

The neo-renaissance building is located in Na Stráži Street. It was built in 1896 at the initiative of Sokol association members, with financial support from the town. The original stucco decorations have been preserved on the facade and inside the hall.

Remnants of the Town Walls

The grand prior Jan of Rožmberk (1484-1532) was the first master of the town. Semi-circular stone walls were built in the north during his reign and were reinforced by a moat. The town was entered from the east through Prague Gate and from the west through Horažďovice Gate. In the middle of the northern wall there used to be a small door – "fortna", today commemorated by the Fortna shopping centre in Na Stráži Street. The town battlements were reinforced by a number of bastions; remnants of one of them can be found near Renner Gardens. 

Gloriette

The late-Empire gloriette was built in 1837 on an artificial hill in the Renner Gardens. It is a tiny park structure in the shape of an open ancient temple. 

House No. 106 in Palackého Square

Burgher House No. 106 was in the place of an older building destroyed by fire in 1859. The house was owned by fez manufacturers, which is likely reflected in the facade decorations, which are vaguely reminiscent of the Orient, where most local produce was exported. The building went through a number of reconstructions in the 20th century.

The Marian column on the Palacký Square

The dominant of the Palacký Square is a baroque Marian column from 1730–1740. It was originally built on the Large Square ofter the great black death in 1586. Marian columns were erected to express thanks for diversion of a Black Death epidemics and as a pray to the Holy Virgin to save the town from the Black Death attack in the future. After the Second World War it was placed onto the Palacký Square.
