Castle (Manor) Garden

The remainder of an originally extensive landscape park established in the mid-18th century west of the castle.

Hajská Pools and Modlešovice Heaps

An area on the right-bank fluvial plain of the Otava River, east of the  town in the cadastral territory of Hajská, which was significantly changed by the gold mining activity of humans during the Middle Ages. The system of smaller pools with valuable wetland and aqueous vegetation (most significantly the water violet) and many kinds of amphibians was declared a specifically protected area in 1985 (natural monument, 6.50 hectares). There are continuously executed revitalization works that include removal of mud from the grounded pools and foundation of new pools.

Volyňka River

A mountain river rising below Světlá hora near Vimperk in Šumava. Its upper stream is sometimes called Třeštilka (harum-scarum) due to the sudden and dangerous rises of water during torrential rains. In Strakonice, it flows into the Otava River after 46 km. In the past, it was a part of the defence system of Strakonice Castle (together with the Blatský Pond and the Otava River) and it was often used by fullers and hosiery makers, the predecessors of tarbush producers.

Otava River

A natural axis of the Strakonice and Prácheň region, 113 km long, famous for gold mining and extraction of pearls from river pearl oysters. It is created by the confluence of Vydra and Křemelná at Čeňkova Pila in Šumava. The name is based on the Celtic word Atawa, which means “rich water”. The Podskalí educational trail goes along the river, which presents the natural and historical interesting facts concerning the river, among other things also the water-sportsmanship (rafting).

Podskalí

A romantic valley of the Otava at the entrance to the town with isolated rocks. Used as a trip and rest destination and resting place, now it is a town recreational zone with multilateral use (cycling path, playground for children, boating campsite). On the left bank, there was the former swimming pub and on the opposite bank there is a 4.5 m high copy of moai statue on the Zellerina Meadow at the Calvary Hill with thermophilic oak wood.

Memorable Tree: Wenceslas’ Linden

The oldest and mightiest tree in Strakonice at the town cemetery with St. Wenceslas’ Church, by the road from Strakonice to České Budějovice. According to the legend, it was planted at a place where in 1504 three Jews accused of a ritual murder of a small boy were burnt to death at the order of the authority in spite of the disapproval of Vladislas II of theJagiellonian, the Czech king. Circumference of the trunk: 550 cm, height: 25 m, age: 350-400 years.

Nature Trail of Schwanda the Bagpiper

The nature trail was established in 2007-2008. It is 11 kilometres long and it goes through the places where the legendary Schwanda the Bagpiper spread joy. There are seven stops with information boards where you can learn some interesting facts from the history of Strakonice. Information is supplemented with period photographs, melodies of famous songs or legends and stories about bagpipes and bagpipers. The trail is marked by yellow tourist signs and it starts and ends at Strakonice Castle.
