The day begins with the “pikador”
Future regulars, welcome to Budějce! You’ve made a good choice to come by train, later, it will come in handy. You’re probably hungry after that trip. Ask for “pikador” * at the station buffet. And watch out for the pronunciation, so that everybody gets you here.

The Samson fountain in the Budějce square
Walking from the train station you will reach Přemysl Otakar II. Square, where the baroque jewel of Samson’s fountain is located. Our fountain is one of the greatest of his kind in the Czech Republic and represents the symbol of the city. According to it, we have named our beer as well.Show on a map

Dawn at the Malše River
Spojka is simply the best, but those guys just have to close eventually. Have one bottled one at the Malše River, so that you don’t get out of shape. And then straight back to the train stationShow on a map
