The main landmark is the Church of the Saints Peter and Paul. The original was built in the 11th or 12th century. In the 13th century, when this sacral building was no longer sufficient for its spatial capacity, a new, early Gothic church was built, in which the former church was incorporated as a sacristy. In the 1890s, the church was extended and rebuilt into the Neo-Romanesque style.Other sights include: Baroque rectory from the 18th century Stone wayside shrine from 1636 along the road towards Hluboká nad Vltavou, with the coat-of-arms of the former estate owner, Baltasar Marradas Former china clay mine Orty, a natural monument Memorial to those killed in World War I Houses built in the Folk Baroque style
