The town of Bechyně is situated in the picturesque countryside over the river Lužnice. In the past it belonged to the oldest administrative centres and included a considerable part of South Bohemia with the residence of the archdeaconry as early as the beginning of the Middle Ages. The Bechyně owner`s coat of arms reminds you of the old symbol of South Bohemia - cinquefoil rose, the crest of Petr Vok - the last Rosenberg regent. In 1998 the town had 6124 inhabitants.
