The ancient South Bohemian town of Třeboň was founded in the 1150s and is situated in the centre of the Třeboňsko Nature Reserve and the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Vast waters alternating with woods and meadows, narrow paths along fishpond dams, a variety of birds on the waters and shores, and majestic oak trees, all create the atmosphere of the region of Třeboň.

The fish farming heritage of Třeboň – over 500 fi shponds and pools – comprises the 16 cascades in the region. The first fishponds were founded in the second half of the 14th century, with Dvořiště and Bošilec listed as the oldest ones. The golden age of fish farming began in the 16th century with the arrival of fishpond builders Štěpánek Netolický and Jakub Krčín of Jelčany and Sedlčany. Experience the unique atmosphere and visit the ponds in spring or autumn when they are being fished out.
