Cesky Krumlov

Location: Czech Republic


A UNESCO World Heritage site since 1992, south Bohemia's Cesky Krumlov is one of Bohemia´s prettiest towns, made up of elegant Renaissance buildings housing charming cafes, pubs, restaurants, shops and galleries, all surrounded by the picturesque countryside of southern Bohemia. Its old town, which dates from the 12th century—accounting for its medieval street plan—is contained on three sides by the meandering Vltava River, whose curving path may have given Krumlov ("crooked meadow") its name.

On this day trip we will explore the quaint town center, which is like a miniature of Prague itself with a castle set high on a hill and the townspeople concentrated below. Our tour includes a visit to the Castle and a walk along the Vltava, which has a way of popping up multiple times no matter what your itinerary.
