About Tábor

The city of Tábor was founded in 1420, during the Hussite revolution (Hussites were Czech Christian reformers following the teachings of Jan Hus). It has a relatively big old town with many splendid streets. It is located on the top of a hill and protected from one side by Luznice River, and in the other side by Jordan Lake, the oldest water reservoir in Central Europe. These days, Tábor is the second-biggest city in South Bohemia with a population of 35,000 people. A big castle, old town hall and other sights remind visitors of its interesting past.
