Holašovice - Tour of the municipality 2

Map of the tour.

If you wish to find out more about architecture in the ‘village baroque’ style, then we have a suggested tour for you. We can commence our tour in the former school (today an information centre) (1) with a look at the exhibition on the history of Holašovice. We can begin the tour anywhere, but because none of the protected buildings are open to the public, we can say at least a little bit about the dual-purpose design of the majority of the buildings. Each house would be accessed through the entrance hall, which divided the house into inhabited and agricultural sections. Extra value in such a homestead would be added by a so-called ‘výměnka’, where the farmer’s parents would live, a granary, cowshed, threshing floor, barn and similar outbuildings. At the centre of the buildings there was a yard, and the building was accessible to the village green through a gateway (2). In front of the houses we can see various small gardens, pumps and wells. The central motif of the village green is the chapel dating from 1755 (3). The self-standing cross was consecrated in 1935. Several tourist trails pass through Holašovice, such as the Holašovická tour (Skalka Střední Hora - Svelhan Kluk) or the educational trail through Brložek and the Blanský les cycle route. These routes lead us for example to Dívčí Kámen, Klet‘, the Zlatá Koruna monastery, Český Krumlov or the surrounding villages with their highly valuable folk architecture.

Maybe you were unaware that...

As the name of the village suggests, this place was settled by the Holas people or, in other words, the subjects of a certain Holas, from whom the name Holašovice was taken. Each year on the penultimate weekend in July the “Village celebrations” take place here. This typical Bohemian fair brings together examples of more than 230 traditional and non-traditional crafts from Bohemia, Moravia and Slovakia with a rich cultural programme.
