Kamenice nad Lipou

Kamenice nad Lipou (Czech pronunciation: [ˈkamɛɲɪtsɛ ˈnadlɪpou̯]) is a small town situated in the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands between Pelhřimov and Jindřichův Hradec. Its most important sight is a castle. It took part of its name after an ancient lime tree that still grows in the garden adjacent to the castle ("nad lipou" means "above a lime tree"). The tree is believed to be 700–900 years old. Kamenice nad Lipou is a birthplace of the Czech 19th-century composer Vítězslav Novák. A famous Jindřichův Hradec to Obrataň narrow gauge railway runs through the town.
