Pelhřimov

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Pelhřimov is a small district capital (16 thousand people) in Vysočina with a nice town square and historical centre. With a fountain in the middle of the square and historical buildings around it is a beautiful place to stop when travelling from the highway (exit 90 - Humpolec) towards České Budějovice.

This place became famous because of its festival of world records, however this event is very dull and does not attract many tourists. The town centre itself is beautiful, very compact and the surrounding country is a great place to take a bike or just ride around during sunny summer days.
