Historic Center of Cesky Krumlov, Cesky Krumlov

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.

  • I recommend a stroll through the picturesque streets with cafes, restaurants and shops. Sometimes one found in both the zmenšenině of Prague in the old town. The ideal is to go early in the morning, when they are not in the streets or crowds in the evening, when everything is illuminated.

  • Beautiful quoted, but too crowded and many interesting shops. A lot of toutiste catcher. The Czechs seem to see too many people. Not nice at all.

  • One of the most beautiful historic cities I know. Pleasant walks through the city, that never get tired of. Often we return here. Very beautiful are the Festival of roses that are held each year (c) June.

  • Krumlov is a very beautiful city, entangled in the twist of the River Vltava (Vltava). But the impression is disturbed by that almost all shops are filled with poor tourist products and clothing of dubious quality for high prices. I felt it as a big tourist backdrop and it's too bad for so fine a city. And so everything is very expensive in Krumlov.

  • I am very happy in Krumlov. A beautiful city with the revolving auditorium in the castle garden. We were on the Rusalka. Really experience ... a little long at a time.

  • This medieval town has lots of charm, a manageable size, and a magnificent Castle. Like anywhere, where it is particularly beautiful, there are lots of visitors of course. So you have to live.
