The centerpiece of the village is the spectacular castle and its small square, Námìstí Svornosti, almost identical to Prague's square, yet here the size delivers a more intimate feeling. Renaissance and Baroque buildings enclose the meandering curve of the Vltava River, which is dotted with riverside cafes and bars.
The town itself fell into neglect during the Communist era, but it has now been polished and it shines again. The restoration has turned the heritage buildings lining the narrow lanes into classy small hotels, restaurants, and shops. The town now has more than 300 beautifully preserved historic buildings and was originally owned by the powerful Baron of Rozmberk. The second largest fort in the Czech Republic is among the sites and can be visited. There is the Mestske Muzeum, a Czech Ceramic Design Museum, the Museum of Torture, and a synagogue with various open hours.
