Stádlec Suspension Bridge

This bridge was originally standing on another place – crossing Vltava river next to Podolsko village but had to be moved because of building Orlík dam in 1960’s. More than 2000 granite blocks and 1100 steel parts had to be disassembled and moved to its current place – crossing of Lužnice river near Stádlec village – and opened for public in 1975. Nowadays it’s the last remaining suspension bridge in empire style in Czech and was declared a Czech National Historic Landmark in 1989. It can still be used even by cars but with limited weight and width. So watch for steel columns while driving on to the bridge!

We recommend combining your trip to Stádlec Bridge with visit to cities Tábor and Bechyně.

Lighting Tower Srbsko

This fairy tale looking tower once served to illuminate the Petzold quarry near Srbsko village so miners could work day and night as there was high demand for limestone back in those days. It was built in 1925 and mining was stopped in 60’s and the tower decays from these days. It is now a ruin and it’s not safe to enter. It can collapse any time! So please admire this wonderful building from distance.
