Vltava Cycling Trail: Zvíkov lower castle - Kamýk nad Vltavou

Through the ancient villages of Toulava.

Zvíkov Castle is definitely worth a visit, but if you do not want to get held up on the tour before the 43 km of this stage, you can go across the Zvíkov Bridge over the Vltava River and set off straight away. The bridge is 252 m long and spans almost five tens of meters above the water surface.

A beautiful stop on the route is represented by the village of Zahrádka, which was declared a village monument zone. Perhaps the local picturesque coexistence of the old greenery, the Jickovický brook and the rustic baroque was the reason why the Strakonice bagpiper movie was filmed here.

In the ancient Kostelec nad Vltavou you can admire the Church of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary standing on a hill in the middle of the village, or check out the local museum.

You will later pass through Žebrákov, another village monument zone with timbered houses from the 18th century. It is also the last South Bohemian village on the Vltava cycling path.

In Klučenice, another village with an ancient settlement, you can have a late lunch, as this village is in about the middle of your trip.

In Krásná nad Vltavou, you can pay tribute to the departed at the monument to the victims of World War I and a plane crash.
