Another world-famous stop on your trip will be Ceske Budejovice, which gave its name to Budweiser beer.  Other attractions to be visited are Hluboka Nad Vltavou with its famous castle, Pisek, a town with a remarkable historical centre and the oldest stone bridge in the Czech Republic, the royal castle of Zvíkov standing high above the confluence of the rivers Vltava and Otava. You will stay at Pribram, a town with a long history of silver mining and more recently of uranium mining during the twentieth century, nearby is the Holy Mountain with its pilgrimage Church of the Virgin Mary dating from the 16th century. The last but one night you will spend in Karlstejn village with its spectacularly-located fourteenth century Gothic castle. The tour ends by arriving into your hotel in Prague.
