Prachatice is a town in the South Bohemian Region, Czech Republic.HistoryThe town of Prachatice has its origins in the 11th century, following the beginning of trade on the Golden Path (an important salt trade route beginning in Passau, Bavaria). The property on which the town now stands was initially part of the domain of Vyšehrad and first came to prominence when the domain's provost purchased the right to impose a toll on traffic on the Golden Path. The settlement later grew in importance when, in the 13th century, it was granted the right to store the salt that was traded on the Golden Path. This privilege made Prachatice the only town in Southern Bohemia that could buy the salt that was sent out of Passau.During the Hussite Wars of the 15th century, Prachatice was attacked twice and eventually conquered by the Hussites who killed most of the population of the town. After the end of the conflict, in 1436, Prachatice was granted the status of royal town. Only one year later the town was offered as collateral to Jan Smil of Krems by King Zikmund (Sigismund, Holy Roman Emperor), but fell under the control of the House of Rožmberk for a short period following Smil's execution in 1439 at Český Krumlov. Oldřich of Rožmberk sold the town of Prachatice almost immediately after the execution but it again became property of the family in 1501.
