Trebon Fishpond Heritage (UNESCO-Ramsar)

The T?ebo? Basin is a world-famous fishpond area in Southern Bohemia. The area's marvelous nature and landscape environment, formed by a sophisticated system of man-made waterworks, is enhanced by its many outstanding architectural monuments. The prosperity of the town of T?ebo?, the area's economic hub, began after in 1366 with its acquisition by the Rožmberk family who systematically developed fish farming and breeding. The overall character of the T?ebo? landscape along the Lužnice River between the towns of T?ebo? and Veselí nad Lužnicí bears witness to the systematic activities of the fishpond engineers Št?pánek Netolický and Jakub Kr?ín. The backbone of the entire pond system is the Golden Canal which draws the water from the Lužnice River to the adjacent ponds and the New River, an artificial canal joining the rivers Lužnice and the Nežárka and to the ponds Sv?t and Rožmberk. The Rožmberk Fishpond is the largest pond in the Czech republic.

About: There are currently twelve unique Unesco World Heritage Sites in the Czech Republic that you can visit. However, there are many more fascinating sites in this beautiful country. In the Unescom?žeš (Unesco You Like) project we bring you a number of short documentary videos about the sites which are listed in the Czech Republic's Unesco World Heritage Tentative List. One day, these sites may become part of the World Heritage. Until that time you can enjoy their unique beauty in our videos and maybe it might even inspire you to choose the Czech Republic for the destination of your next trip. All of the films were shot by Czech photographer Ondrej Tylcer and each movie is accompanied by soundtrack music which was inspired by the site's mood, produced by the renowned Czech musician Robert Forman.

The project is supported by the Ministry of Culture Czech Republic.
