Býšov Fortress

The Býšov fortress can be found 7 km south of Týn nad Vltavou in the protected zone of the Temelín nuclear power plant. It stands in an elevated area. It comes from the 14th century when the presence of village with a fortress owned by the Býšovec clan of Býšov was documented at this place. The fortress belonged to a number of owners, including the Schwarzenberg aristocratic family. The fortress ranks among the best-preserved minor noble buildings in the Southern Bohemia. Thanks to its long-term use for agricultural purposes, nearly no building adaptations have been carried out. The fortress is dominated by the two-storied residential square tower (10×10 m, 20 m high) with an adjacent single-storey farmhouse in the east. The fortress has been reconstructed recently and now it is used as a local museum.
