touristically talking there is not much to do in budweis but a few things to see. and since it is only a 2 hours drive from prague it is perfect for a day trip.
this small town has some great architecture and especially the bright colored facades of almost every building are eye-candy. the city center is surrounded by a canal and i love cities that have a river or some other kind of watersources. so even though you are far away from a lake or the ocean you still get the feeling of fresh nature. so basically a great city if you just like wandering around.
while i was walking around i felt thursty and also a bit hungry so i was keeping my eye open and looked for a café or something like that. and then i discovered cobliha - a cute little bistro. they had the best selection of flavored water i have ever seen. i swear they had like almost 10 different flavors and for like 1-2 euro i got a whole carafe. and they also do have a large menu - unfortunately no veggie choice but they were so kind to make me something.
and if you haven't guessed it by now - budweis? yes it is also beer and yes it is from this city. so if you like beer then you should go and see the brewery. i didn't go but they do have a brewery tour so you should check that out as well.
oh and by the way - České Budějovice is actually the correct name but try to pronounce that one.
