Historic Center of Cesky Krumlov, Cesky Krumlov
(4.9/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
A well-preserved example of a small central European medieval town, walkable Historic Center of Cesky Krumlov is one of the country's major tourist attractions, designated as a World Heritage Site. Hugging the banks of the Vltava River, the town spreads around a 13th-century castle that's famous for combining the finest elements of Gothic, Baroque, and Renaissance architecture. Neglected for many years during the Communist era, the town's rich architectural heritage received a much-needed facelift through a series of major restoration projects over the last two decades. The exquisitely restored old buildings lining the historical center's narrow streets now house trendy restaurants and classy hotels, augmenting the town's fairytale atmosphere with tourist-geared modern amenities.

  • Beautiful old architecture. A large number of shops and cafes and restaurants. For a photographer at night simply paradise.

  • CK shuttle service, moved from Prague. It's about 3 hours from Prague. Thought during the day for the size of the city frequented by tourists as the night was very quiet. Is a small, compact city, but many, even if one day I never got tired.
