On our last day in Czechia we visited castle Hluboka, just a few kilometres north from Budweis.
Before going there, we saw this nuclear power station of Temelin.
These 4 huge cooling towers just were built near the border between Austria and Czechia. It once made Austrian people scared, because they worried about the possibility of exploding.
However, when you see them in the landscape, then they even look a bit beautiful, and not dangerous at all.
When we arrived in the small town Hluboka, we had lunch first in a restaurant just a few meters from this nice small church.
The dumplings and Sauerkraut were different with Austrian ones, but they all tasted not so bad, I liked them so much.
Look, I was so happy to take such a delicious food.
Later we went up to the castle, seeing the first parts of it when passing through a small forest.
It was a very magnificent castle, each corner of it looked like a beautiful picture...
Hluboka is really a nice and romantic castle.
Unfortunately we had no opportunity to take pictures of the nice interiors, as photographing was not allowed there.
In the park near the castle.
Inside the castle.
Before the main tour through the interior rooms started, we had some time to climb the castle tower first...
...from where we had a nice view on the park and surrounding area.
In Czechia, we baught one bear which named Sissi, and one hedgehog which named Nene. They were very cute, we liked them so much.
When my honey was driving, I put Nene on his shoulder and took a picture for them, looked so interesting.
I took the picture with Nene by myself in our car.
Sissi and Nene, hehe...
Before we went back to Austria, we decided to take Czechia food for the last time. Then we drove to a small village close to the border, and took the dinner in a local small restaurant.
My honey ordered two sweet dumplings, very big and round dumplings, looked so funny. I made a fun of them, and said they looked like two D cup breasts, haha...
I ordered this Palatschinken with banana and icecream, tasted very nice.
