Historie mesta Ceský Krumlov, Cesky Krumlov

A well-preserved example of a small central European medieval town, walkable Historie mesta Ceský 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.

  • We visited here as a side trip during a recent cruise on the Danube. The town was really fun to walk around. The old part is interwoven with the Vltav River, making it even more picturesque. You can r...  more »
  • Cesky Krumlov is a 2-hour drive from central Prague. Once you've entered through the narrow gate, the journey back in time begins. Some buildings are officially medieval. With its narrow and unspoiled streets, a lot of historical spots to visit, I think it's a beautiful place from Karlovy Vary. It is a pleasure to visit every point from the castle to the church on the hill. When you go up the hill, there's a map of the town, and you can see much more clearly how the river surrounding it shapes the town. I would also recommend a very pleasant meal by the river.

  • The center is really charming. A very well maintained medieval city. You're going to lose count of how many photos you're going to take. The downside is that it gets very crowded, especially between 10 and 17 hours, when tourists arrive knock-back from Prague. Mostly Orientals. Spend at least one night to have the city just for you.

  • Cesky Krumlov is a town of UNESCO World Heritage. Here is second largest castle complex in the Czech Republic and the oldest Baroque theatre in the world. Every time when I come to Czech Republic I have to go there and relax in old lanes walking around...
  • Fantastic place
  • Český Krumlov is a city in the Czech Republic, the capital of the district of the same name, in South Bohemia, well known for its unique architecture and castle. The beautiful historic centre of the city has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The town, crossed by the river Vltava, with its houses and its small shops very characteristic of the historical center, the many museums and a beautiful square where is located the palace of the town Hall, is a city to visit. Český Krumlov is also an important cultural center in the Czech Republic, hosting several festivals and other events throughout the year. The best known is the festival of the Rose of the five petals, which is celebrated at the weekend of the summer solstice in June. Very nice, clean, quaint and well organized.

  • His location is in the center of the square, so you will pass to the castle, has been well preserved town, the atmosphere is very good, many restaurants nearby, it is recommended to do homework early, need to make a reservation to remember to book first, so the trip will be more comfortable.

  • City that still retains its medieval traces, beautiful charming, is 3 hours by bus from Prague, recommends one-day visit, overnights I think just worth in summer in cold months the city has no nightlife. By Regiojet, bus company that connects Prague Krumlov in 3 hours, bus with on board service, coffee, hot chocoloate and multimedia system there is another bus company that also makes this course but I think the difference if price doesn't compensate. Cesky Krumlov this spiked virtually around the river that almost completely surrounds doing an "s" between the city and the Castle, which has your free entry for visitors. Amid the ancient contruçõea and souvenir shops and local restaurants its alleys are a discovered around every corner. A 5-hour visit in the city I believe is enough. As commented only on hot days and nights drag Pack the streets of stones is not very easy task.
