Schwarzenberg Mausoleum


Some 26 members of the noble Schwarzenberg family are buried in this grand neo-Gothic mausoleum, dating from 1877, located in Park U Hrobky on the other side of the pond from Třeboň. The crypt is about a 15-minute walk from the centre along well-marked paths. Guided tours in English are possible but must be arranged in advance.
