It's quiet here and there's space to sit quietly and contemplate the history of this little village. Don't hurry through, enjoy it.

Loved my visit here as it took me back to my childhood and that of my parents, although it is still a working farming village the beauty has been preserved. At the far end of the village is a mini version of Stonehenge and well worth a walk around. If you are in the area do not miss coming here.

It's a wonderful town that live in a magic atmosphere. We did several kilometers by bike under the rain to arrive here but for see the typical architecture was a good choice.

We went to Holasovice to see the UNESCO World Heritage Baroque architecture. Not a very easy place to find, although there are the odd brown heritage signs out in the country lanes, Holasovice is still a working farming village but also incredibly beautiful. Its white painted but decorated farmhouses line the central square which had a small pond and to... More

I had the opportunity to hitch a ride to Holasovice over the weekend. It was my first visit and I had the opportunity to tag along with a wedding party. I can say if you have the means to visit by car or tour bus, I would suggest visiting here. 2 restaurants are there. One was closed for another private... More

A walk through this small village takes less then an hour - including a detour towards the "Stonehenge of Holasovice", and a walk down a dead-end street, which, miraculously, leads to a small pond. But this one hour in this village where time seems to have stopped can provide food for thoughts for many more hours - so, from my... More

Very beautiful houses around the plaza. The traffic is not easy. We take bus from České Budějovice in the morning. But when we want to go back, it turns to be very difficult. We take bus to another bus station to transfer, and the next bus does not stop. So we have to wait for another one and half an... More

Not far away from Ceske Budejovice. Great stop on your bicycle ride through the area. It's an unspoilt 18th century still living and working village. It's not a museum ! You must visit it during an annual hand craft festival, which takes place always the third weekend of July ! Fantastic celebration of Czech handcrafting, traditional food, music, dance and... More

Holasovice is a pretty little village near Ceske Budejovice. The restored buildings are nice to look at, and a walk around the village should take around 30-45 minutes ( unless you stop at one of the two restaurants ). During our short stay two coaches arrived to briefly deposit tourists to take photos of the village, although I did notice... More

A rare example of rural Baroque, this is a great place for a short stop or even a lunch break. There are two pubs, serving decent Czech food and good beer - even theor local brew. A very scenic drive from Hluboka castle, it would be great to take a bicycle ride there.
