The nearby town of Písek is a royal town, where the most famous attraction is undoubtedly the Stone Bridge, which dates to the 13th century and is the oldest preserved stone bridge in the country.
One of the most popular events in the city is Pískovište (previously called Cipískoviště), during which sand sculptures on a specific theme are created on the banks of the Otava by the old Stone Bridge.
An important archaeological monument in the city center is regarded as one of the oldest preserved bridges not only in the Czech Republic (it is the oldest here), but also in Europe.
A very popular place, especially for families with children, where experiential interactive exhibitions are held. The reconstructed former malt house directly on the square now serves as an open cultural space.
