The city of České Budějovice was founded in 1265 at the confluence of the Malše and Vltava rivers. The entire city was surrounded by fortifications. The rests of city walls you can see at the right side of the Malše river and the same moment you can visit small picturesque pubs.
Around the main Přemysl Otakar II Square stand 48 historical buildings, the most important of which is the Town Hall in the Baroque style. In the middle of the Square stands one of the symbol of the city, the Baroque Samson´s Fountain.
Another symbol of České Budějovice, the Black Tower (72 m, 225 stairs, open 10 am-6 pm, ex. Monday) is located near the St. Nicolas Cathedral.
