HISTORICAL MONUMENTS IN TŘEBOŇ

Tomb of the Schwarzenbergs – one of the most noteworthy architectural monuments in South Bohemia. It is located in the park on the southeast side of Svět pond. It was built in the late 19th century in the Gothic style. The tomb contains the remains or commemorates the 27 members of the Schwarzenberg family. One of its peculiarities is that the tomb is located below ground level and the level of Svět pond.
Josef Kajetán Tyl Theatre – built in 1832 in the premises of the former town brewery malt house. A gilded wooden chandelier hangs in the auditorium. The painted decoration of the ceiling and the walls above the stage are the work of painter V. Skála.
Deanery Church of the Virgin Mary and St. Giles – a former Augustinian monastery located near the main square. A special feature is the church aisle, which was built here for the first time in the Czech lands. Also from around 1400 is the marl statue of the Madonna with child, which is the only one still housed in the Church.

FISH FARMING IN THE TŘEBOŇ REGION
Fish farming has a long tradition in the Třeboň Region. The first ponds (originally called states) were established in the second half of the 14th century. The oldest are Dvořiště and Bošilecký. The golden era of fish farming begins in the 16th century. The pond system is dominated by the Rosenberg pond (647 hectares), built between 1584–1590, Svět pond, the Golden Canal, which serves as a control and supply for the Třeboň ponds. More than 500 lakes and ponds presently make up 16 systems in the Třeboň Region, the most famous of which are Nadějská and Chlumecká. Fish farming is also reflected in the character of culinary specialties and the Rybářská bašta (Fisherman's Delight) restaurant menu
