Fodor's Expert Review Hrad Kotnov

Tabor Castle/Palace

Rising above the river in the distance, this castle dates to the 13th century and was part of Tábor's earliest fortifications. After a fire in the early 1600s the castle was rebuilt as a brewery. You can visit the tower, which the Hussites used for storing artillery, as well as Bechyňská brána (Bechyně Gate). This is the last city gate still standing, and has been preserved in its original High Gothic style. Inside is an exhibit titled Life and Work of Medieval Society. Night tours of the castle and tower are sometimes available.
