Although tanning workshops disappeared completely from Tábor and from
the banks of River Lužnice, this part of town is still called "The
Tannery". Since this craft, formerly so typical of Tábor, the tannery
workers earned a nickname "Blue Bellies". This because the bluestone
was used for leaching of the animal hides, which thus also colored the
tanners work aprons. In the upper left part you can see the synagogue
built in 1885 and destroyed in 1977.
