Historic Centre of Ceský Krumlov
Situated on the banks of the Vltava river, the town was built around a 13th-century castle with Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque elements. It is an outstanding example of a small central European medieval town whose architectural heritage has remained intact thanks to its peaceful evolution over more than five centuries.
This city is a jewel...we could only stay 2 nights, as we didn't plan for it to be such an amazing place.
We went in late Sept. The beautiful pedestrian only cobbelstone streets were throughout this city built into a mountain side. So much to explore(Bring good walking shoes)
We happened to go when there was a festival for the princes birthday. Outdoor music, dancing and great food! If you like fresh fish you simply must have trout here, which comes straight from the river.
Dying to come back in the summer...swimming, fishing and boating. Highly recommend staying 5 days or week if you can. And make sure to sample the local beer...Budvar!
If you're on a budget, you can't beat this town. Average dinner for two with beer was less then $20.US!
