Welcome to the webpage of Bílsko in South Bohemia.
The municipality of Bílsko consists of three villages - Bílsko, Netonice and Záluží.
Located in the southwest of the Czech Republic, the village of Bílsko is situated in the Prácheňsko region spreading in the basin of the Otava river. The surrounding area of Bílsko has been inhabited since the ancient times, namely the nearby hill Hrad (667m above sea level) where some Slavonic remains have been found. Early settlements were established mainly along the Golden Path, a northsouth salt-trading route connecting Passau in Bavaria with Prachatice and Prague in Bohemia. Bílsko got its name from the colour of the stream running through the village. The archeological findings show that the nearby area was inhabited early in history; the discovery of a burial site close to Bílsko has uncovered some pottery urns and bronze artefacts, which are now kept in the local history museum in Vodňany; and approximately 50 square meters of black topsoil westwards from the village indicate that charcoal burning was practised there.
