Tabor – Czech Republic

Tabor is a lovely little town, population 37000, about 100km south of Prague with regular train connections taking about 90 minutes. It is a great place to wander around for a day and could be a base for exploring other parts of South Bohemia.

This is the church tower from which the photos of Zizka square were taken. After climbing the 200 steps, past the church bell, you then pay your 25 crown ticket – well worth it for the views of Tabor.

Tabor is not a big town but the backstreets are a joy to walk through. Interesting little shops, bars and restaurants. What more could you ask for?
