Just outside the town, you will find the Gothic Cistercian monastery dating from 1259 with its unique library of 70 000 books and a postal museum. The monastery was damaged several times by fire. The church's present furnishing was restored during the forties of the 17th century in a mainly Baroque style. Also the abbey, which now serves as a postal museum, dates from this period, as well as most of the farm buildings next to the monastery. The monastery's library was founded in 1757 and contains rare manuscripts and is certainly worth visiting. On the opposite side of the road, you find the river Moldew. Here you can rent a canoe for a short or long downstream trip to Český Krumlov and further, passing Vyšší Brod and castle Rožmberk. It is a real experience and not expensive at all.
