Jindrichuv Hradec is a small city located in the south of the Czech republic along the Vajgar lake. The area has been inhabited since the 10th century, although the first written mention of the town is of 1220. The historic core is centered on the beautiful Namesti miru main square and the nearby castle. The Namesti miru square is bordered by picturesque building facades and has a holy trinity column at its centre. The castle is located on a pond and was initially built in the 13th century, then expanded and rebuilt until the 17th century. For this reason it is built in a number of architectural styles ranging from gothic, to renessaince and baroque.
