  • František Křižík founded the municipal power plant in Písek, which is still functional. Its arc lamps illuminated Písek, the first city in Bohemia. The power plant drives Francis ' turbines. The exposition is small, but it contains many exhibits and descriptions. You can also look at the engine room to see the operation of the power plant. It is possible to climb out on the island, sit here and admire the view of the stone Písek Bridge. The tour is worth a visit, it's very interesting!

  • The municipal power station is the oldest working hydroelectric plant in Bohemia, it was established by František Křižív in 1888. Písek was the first city in the Czech Republic with permanent public electric lighting. The building, including machinery, was declared a cultural monument. There are two Francis turbines working in it. The premises are not very large, but there are a lot of exhibits, from the power plant it is possible to climb the island, the whole exposition extremely interesting. Today, the power plant is still operational, although it is far from having a chance to cover the current needs. For a fee it is possible to take pictures, when leaving we received a gift in the price of the photo fee. Tour without a guide, we got the information in printed form, but the gentleman at the cashier confessed and was able to answer anything, from the tour we were leaving enthusiasm.
