Třeboň is a historical town in South Bohemian Region of Czech Republic. Třeboň was established around the middle of the 12th century. In 1366 the House of Rožmberk become owner of the estate. The period of greatest growth for the town dates to the second half of the 15th century when Petr IV of Rožmberk (1462 - 1523) seriously began to take care of the land. The district became famous as a fish pond farming area. From 1611 the Houses of Habsburg and Schwarzenberg were owners of the town and the estate. In the 19th and 20th centuries the city's importance decreased.

The unknown Master of the Třeboň Altarpiece, a 12th-century Bohemian painter, received his name from an altarpiece painted for the Augustinian convent in the town.

We have chose Třeboň as a base for exploring Telc and Cesky Krumlov, but we never regretted that we stayed there for a couple of days, as it appeared a cosy old town, surrounded by a wall, with a castle taking a quarter of the old town and a beer factory taking another quarter ;))

Here we see the main town square, Masarykovo náměstí (Mazaryk square). Just as the famous square in nearby Telc, it was completely rebuilt in the Czech Renaissance style after the fire of 1562.
