Long Description:
Týn nad Vltavou is counted among the oldest settlements in South Bohemia. In the 12th century (maybe in the 10th century) it used to be a fortified court of Prague's bishops with a market and parochial settlement with two churches. The settlement was burnt down at the end of the 1280's and a new castle and a town called Nový Týn ("New" Týn) were founded here. The town developed successfully and Emperor Rudolph II promoted it to a royal town in 1609. During the Thirty Years' War growth stopped, the town burnt down several times and was plundered twice. The new boom started after the Second World War.
