An arched gateway encloses the courtyard and the double-gabled frontage - whether plain or ornate - of a white-painted building crowned with a red roof. Facing the threshing floor is a row of massive barns with dark doorways patiently awaiting the harvest. These simple features of the farmhouses, together with the charming landscape frame, create a poetic composition of the South Bohemian countryside, which has been an inspiration to many artists since the 19th century and has been deeply engraved in the hearts of most South Bohemians. And not only South Bohemians, the image of a village or solitude set in the landscape is so characteristic that it has overshadowed other distinctive features of the region and its sub-regions, and the outside world perceives it almost exclusively from this perspective. Just as some other regions of our country are called regions of castles, wine or spa, South Bohemia is above all a region of rural architecture, for which the not entirely accurate name 'peasant baroque' has been coined. The supra-regional significance and specificity of this phenomenon is also reflected in the fact that the prestigious World Heritage List includes rural settlements of this type only sporadically. Holasovice is an exception and since 1998 it has proudly claimed this legacy.
