About Písek

The name "Písek" means "sand", because of gold prospecting on Otava river. In middle ages, Písek was one of the most populous and important royal cities in Bohemia. It was located on a trade route connecting Bohemia with southern Europe. However, during the centuries Písek lost its importance. Now it is with 30,000 inhabitants third largest city in South Bohemia Region.
