About the Venue – Where is the Course Held?
České Budějovice (also known by its German name Budweis) is the largest city in the South Bohemian Region located about 150 km south from Prague. The city was founded at the site of the confluence of the river Vltava (Moldau) and Malše in 1265. The historic town is still mostly in medieval state. The Dominican monastery stems from the 13th century. The Gothic-Renaissance Černá věž (Black Tower) is with its height of 72 meter a striking dominant on the city skyline and offers a delightful view over the city and its surroundings. On the diamond square one of the largest fountains of Czechia is situated – the Samson Fountain. The city has also become world famous thanks to the Budvar beer, imitated in America under the name Budweiser. Today it is the seat of the Province of South Bohemia.
