On the border with reality.
Chlum u Třeboně with the Hejtman and Staňkovský fish ponds is a far-famed summer resort.
Do you know that the Baroque castle once belonged to František Ferdinand d´Este? It was built in 1710. The way the castle looks today is due to the alternations performed in the late 19th and early 20th century. At present the castle is in private hands and is not open to the public, but the castle park with exotic trees and sculptures from the 18th and 19th century is freely accessible.
From the castle you can take the path with the stations of the cross to the Virgin Mary Assumption Church. It was built in 1737 - 1745 by the owner of the Chlum manor, the Count Jan František of Fünfkirchen. He built it out of gratitude to the Virgin Mary for saving his life. Inside, beatufil Baroque embellishments and some interesting frescoes are located.
At the traditional summer holiday festival Pohádkový Chlum you can meet water spirits and other fairy-tale creatures.
