In between two rivers

Originally, Bechyně was a princely fortified settlement mentioned in the 9th century, situated atop the southernmost rocky outcrop overlooking the confluence of the Smutná River and the Lužnice River. Before 1268, King Přemysl Otakar II obtained the property known as "the desolate mountain of Bechyně" from the Prague bishops and erected a stone castle here. In 1323, during the reign of John of Luxembourg, the town was officially founded and enclosed by protective walls. Over time, the castle was further fortified in the 15th century. The oldest part of the castle, renovated mainly in 1477 and from 1510 to 1527, still features sections of two longitudinal structures connected by a transverse wing. This wing was later joined to the newly constructed "Vok's castle" during the Renaissance. The fourth wing on the southern side of the courtyard was dismantled in 1791. Subsequently, the ownership of Bechyně changed hands again, with Petr Vok of Rožmberk governing from 1569 to 1596. He celebrated his wedding with Kateřina of Ludanice here on February 14, 1580. In 1715, after Maria Theresa of Sternberg's marriage to Jan Leopold Count Paar, Bechyně became the property of the Paar family, who held it until 1948, when the state confiscated the castle. It was then used by the Czech Academy of Science. Following the revolution, the estate was returned through the process of restitution and is currently owned by a company based in Vaduz, Liechtenstein, known as Bechyně SE / Herrschaft Bechyne SE, owned by Josef Stava.
