In Southern Bohemia, about 170 km away from the capital Prague we discover the beautiful Český Krumlov. This little town seems from another world with its picture-perfect historical center, a real spider-web of old alleys. Originally, it developed around Český Krumlov castle, the second largest one in the country which is also its main attraction. The keep, situated on the banks of Vltava River, is a medieval wonder dominating the scenery and offering splendid views from its towers across the green countryside.
If you do decide to go, you have a lot of museums and sites to choose from. One can either explore the palace museum and find out more about the events from its long history which extends all the way back to the 13th century or check out just specific parts like the incredible and almost intact baroque theatre. Another important feature of the castle is its garden. Here the colorful flowers are planted to shape eye-catching mosaics. Český Krumlov was once a home to many noble families like the Rosenbergs, Eggenbergs, and Schwarzenbergs and their beautifully embellished coats of arms are still found across town today. But, if going through old archives and depositories does not excite you, we propose a simple walk through town and perhaps a break in one of the charming restaurants by the river. Also, you can get some great handcrafted souvenirs at the local shops to remind you of your trip to this enchanting place.
Last but not least, we wish you to relax and enjoy your time in Southern parts of the Czech Republic because the available day-long-trips will really take you to a different, dreamy world. The town of Český Krumlov, highly recommended by many of its previous visitors, invites you to stop by and marvel it. Undoubtedly you will return home full of good impressions and memories which are not going to fade for a very long time.
