Lipno nad Vltavou

Lipno nad Vltavou is a quaint town in southern Bohemia lying on the left bank of the Lipno reservoir near the dam.

The town, whose history goes back to the 16th century, used to be situated in the Vltava valley.

The original historical town was from a large part flooded and instead of it a new resort was built.
