Czech Republic, Český Krumlov Guide (B): The Secret Gem of Europe – Cesky Krumlov
It is difficult to explain the charm of this town Cesky Krumlov. A walk through the historical center will open your eyes this beautiful old town. The cobblestone narrow streets and gorgeous little shops, supplying beautiful things at wonderful prices, and the ability to navigate this town on foot only enhances the experience. I have only been once, and will be visiting again this summer.
Cesky Krumlov is a town in the South Bohemia region of the Czech Republic, and is bisected by the Vltava River, and most of all, dominated by its 13th-century castle.
The castle has Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque elements, an 11-hectare garden and an original 17th-century baroque theater. There are panoramic views of the old town and the river from the top of its round bell-tower.
The Krumlov Castle is a great medieval site, which remained untouched during the Second World War. You can visit the castle from 08:00 – 23:00. At night, Krumlov Castle is magical, with fewer people queuing to visit. After wandering through the courtyards, you can make your way to the castle gardens for more magnificent scenery of nature. From the top you can see amazing views of the entire town. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
