A southbohemian village Holašovice is placed about 15 kilometres from the city of České Budějovice. It has been on the list of world cultural heritage of UNESCO since 1998. The village of Holašovice is unique for its preserved set of buildings built in the style of „Rural Baroque“ from the 70´s of the 19th century. The village itself was founded in the middle of the 13th century and in 1292 it was given by the Czech king Václav II to the Cistercian abbey in Vyšší Brod. The cistercians owned the village for the following more than five centuries until the end of feudalism.
The village consists of 23 imposing homesteads that are under protection of the historical monument trust. The homesteads create a complete set of 120 buildings including, stables, barns, granaries, other farming buildings and gates.
There is an almost completely preserved medieval system of setting the homesteads with their gabled front walls of the residential houses and the granaries connected by walls with vaulted gates and entrances facing into the central village square. The setting of the homesteads together with the stucco decoration of the so called „Rural Baroque“ on the most of the face walls give the place its unique atmosphere. The visitor gets into a countryside settlement as it was formed by a difficult structural and visual development in the second half of the 19th century.
