Tábor was founded by Hussite reformers in 1420. Surrounded by historical architecture, breathtaking views, and a bustling town square, the old town has winding cobblestone streets, an ancient castle, baroque churches, underground tunnels, as well as restaurants, pubs and coffee shops. The town is also the birth place of Czech violinist, conductor and composer Oskar Nedbal (1874-1930) as well as jazz-pianist Jiří Traxler (1912-2011).
Each year, Prague Summer Nights spends the first two weeks of the program in Tabor in residence at the Divadlo Oskara Nedbala (pictured below)

This theater, named after the famous Czech musician and conductor Oskar Nedbal, features a unique double auditorium combining a historic opera house with a newer orchestral auditorium. The Nedbal Theatre is the cultural center of Tábor and much of the region, hosting over 50 performing acts per year.
