Fodor's Review

Písek has a brewing history dating back to the Middle Ages. This malt house was built in the 19th century, and continued producing malt for 100 years. In 2008 the city opened Sladovna, a cultural facility that houses two permanent exhibitions and five showrooms for temporary ones. "In the Footsteps of Illustration" focuses on Czech children's book illustrators, and you can see some delightful designs by a variety of artists. There's a spot for inspired kids to color, a reading area, plus an igloo that shows fairy tales. It's all in Czech, but children should appreciate the bright colors and great graphics.
