Today a visit to one of Petrohrad's suburbs, Tábor. The city of Tábor was founded in the XIIIth century next to an already existing castle.  This castle has only partly survived to this day. The city was annexed to Petrohrad in 1963 and since then the former city has rapidly expanded through many housing projects.

We'll start our visit in the old city centre. Its main sight is the Church of the Transfiguration of the Lord on Mount Tabor (now you also know where the city name comes from 2.gif), built in the XIIth century.  Also visible the well preserved city walls. 


A more detailed view of the main square. To the left part of the former city hall from the XVIIIth century.


The Tábor Castle (or what's left of it). To the left the former main entrance, which also served as one of the city gates. The main palace was demolished in the XVIIIth century and replaced over the years by several other buildings, such as a court building (yellow building) and the small church to the left. Also visible is the Dominican Monastery (bottom right).  


The Benedictine Monastery with a romanesque church. Also the (white) Church of the Virgin Mary belongs to the Monastery.


The southern part of the city centre. On top a small part of the main square is visible.


The theatre and water tower.


The eastern part of the city centre and a part of the XIXth century layout of the city. Also visible is a western most tip of an artificial lake called "Jordán". It was constructed in the XVth century and this makes it the oldest artifical lake in the Empire.


A small stream to the north of the city centre. It runs from the lake towards the river south of Tábor.


The confluence of the stream and the Luznice river. To the right a part of the castle is still visible.


The former village of Nové Horky, located on the river Luznice.


An other former village. this time the village of Klokoty.


Some views of the post-1963 housing developments in Petrohrad-Tábor.




And finally, an overview of Petrohrad-Tábor. Hope you enjoyed the tour 1.gif.

This is among the most authentic European CJs I've seen.  This looks like a place I'd like to visit.  Keep up the good work.

Thanks. I got the apartment blocks from here: http://www.simcitypolska.pl/download.php?list.3. There will be a list of several (about 40) downloads. I used these ones: http://www.simcitypolska.pl/download.php?view.99, http://www.simcitypolska.pl/download.php?view.75 and http://www.simcitypolska.pl/download.php?view.339. The site is in Polish (hence .pl), but it is rather straightforward.
