Klika Hotel is located in the historical center, just a 3 minute walk away from the main square Přemysl Otakar II., which is the largest squared square in Central Europe. Samson´s fountain situated right in the middle of the square is the largest of its kind in the Czech Republic. We also recommend to climb 225 steps to the top of the Black Tower to look around, you will have a breathtaking view of the city from the height. Newly renovated Roman Catholic Church of St. Nicholas is located right next to the Black Tower. You can also visit the local Town Hall built in Baroque style.
However, the most important monument you will find in the Piaristické square, directly adjacent to our hotel. This is the monastery church of Virgin Mary, which is the oldest building of České Budějovice. You will find the largest frescoes in the Czech Republic from the 14th century in there or the cross corridor of the neighbouring Dominican monastery with a garden and an enormous energy. It is also worth mentioning another adjoining building - Salt House, which was built in 1531 served as a warehouse of salt. It was linked by a first ever horse-drawn railway in Europe connected with the Austrian city of Linz.
On the other side, the hotel is surrounded by a beautiful and peaceful nature, which invites you to visit and relax. The Sokol Island offers a public swimming pool with fitness and wellness center where you can relax during whatever weather outside or inside. Then there is the Sokol athletic field, tennis courts and many sports facilities as well as the park suitable for a picnic or for a visit of children's playground. In summer, the island or directly the river holds several cultural events. The waterfront offers breathtaking view of the confluence of the Vltava and Malse Rivers. On the other side of the river is another park, observatory, sports hall, ice hockey stadium or a city park Stromovka. This whole area is interlaced with benches and cycling paths and is ideal for walking, cycling, inline skating or a trip on a boat or pedalo.
