The town of Jindrichuv Hradec is a natural administrative centre of the region. There are many cultural monuments in the town, the most significant of which is the Renaissance castle – originally a Roman-Gothic one – and The Baptist Church of St. John built in the early Gothic style with a former monastery of miners.
The varied landscape of the Jindrichuv Hradec region offers opportunities for various forms of recreation. In a relatively undamaged environment there are many nature reserves and sights. The return of elks to this region is considered to be a rarity. Numerous lakes and lake systems established as early as the 16th century are the most striking feature of this district's landscape. Many of these lake constructions are being used to this day.
