Peppered with small country homes and farmsteads, this traditional Czech village is so well preserved it's been designated a UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site. Hardly touched by reconstruction or modern meddling, some of the houses date back to the town's founding in the 13th century. Don't expect grand chateaus or extensive decoration; this is "rural baroque," but every bit as picturesque with custard-yellow façades. The information center at No. 43 has a small exhibit about rural life. Budget about an hour for a visit, or longer if you'd like to enjoy traditional fare at Špejchar u Vojty (Holašovice 3 777–621–221 May–Oct.). Every July a "peasant" festival, Selské slavnosti, is held with traditional crafts and entertainment.
