The town of Bechyně The town of Bechyně is situated in the picturesque countryside over the river Lužnice. In the past it belonged to the oldest administrative centres and included a considerable part of South Bohemia with the residence of the archdeanconry as early as at the beginning of the Middle Ages. The Bechyně owner`s coat-of-arms reminds you of the old symbol of South Bohemia - cinquefoil rose, the crest of Petr Vok - the last Rosenberg regent.
