Rožmberks´ year in Vimperk
this year we remind an important family - the Rožmberks. They influenced the history of our country for four centuries and gave a new face to many cities and places in Southern Bohemia. Vimperk was owned by the Rožmberks and Vilém and Petr Vok spent some time in local castle too. Petr Vok got Vimperk under his administration in 1565.
We prepared (in co-operation with local cultural associations and businessmen) for our visitors the summer cultural program. This program is dedicated to the life of the Rožmberks´ family, so you can "taste" different kinds of food, drinks, sweets and souvenirs. Town hall, castle, restaurants, sweetshops, small shops, brewery... all these organizations have their buildings denoted by white flag with logo of Rožmberks´ year. And what do they offer? Good food in the former style, beer, mead, chocolate coins with the emblem of the city or renaissance glass. For more info visit our website www.rozmberskyrok.vimperk.cz.
