Yesterday we traveled overland to Slavonice, South Bohemia, one mile from the Austrian border. Along the way we stopped in Cesky Budejovice for a tour of the famous Budweiser Budvar Brewery, whose brewing history dates back to the 13th century.
We made our way to Slavonice, a town with roots in the Renaissance.

As ever, excellent photos and interesting sights! What a splendid tour! Were looking forward to hearing more about it.
I love the classic shape of the distillation tanks, and the river of green bottles. The frescoes are pretty impressive,too.
It seems like an interesting trip…….but one I’m enjoying vicariously!
What the heck is going on in that last fresco? It looks like a monkey dressed up in woman’s clothing riding a dragon and people are worshipping her? And feeding her pet dragon? And what is she holding? The artists had an interesting idea of life…
Award winning photos. Thank you for sending.
Those frescos are truly amazing.
Great pics. John forwarded them to me
