Hluboká nad Vltavou

Hluboká nad Vltavou (German pronunciation: Frauenberg) is a town in the South Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic, near České Budějovice. This town was a favourite of Charles IV, who often visited when residing in České Budějovice. It is best known for its famous Windsor style chateau.

The original royal castle of Přemysl Otakar II from the second half of the 13th century was rebuilt at the end of the 16th century by the Lords of Hradec. It received its present appearance under Count Jan Adam of Schwarzenberg. According to the English Windsor example, architects F. Beer and F. Deworetzky built a Romantic Neo-Gothic chateau, surrounded by a 1.9 square kilometres (0.73 sq mi) English park here in the years 1841 (178 years ago) to 1871 (148 years ago). The castle is opened to public. There is a winter garden and riding-hall where the Southern Bohemian gallery exhibitions have been housed since 1956 (63 years ago).

The castle has been used in a scene of Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson's Shanghai Knights.

The city also hosts the renowned Townshend International School which, within a little more than 10 years, brought together in this village students from many diverse corners of the earth.
