When travelling to the Czech Republic, it is a shame to stay in Prague and not visit other parts of the country. The picturesque city of Český Krumlov has recently been ranked as one of the top 10 medieval cities and villages in Europe by Trip Advisor. If you decide for a Tour bus, the ride from the Prague city center takes less than three hours.
Český Krumlov is a town in Southern Bohemia which became a UNESCO heritage location in 1992. The river Vltava, or Moldau, flows through it, creating beautiful meanders. The city has been home to many monarchs and so it has an extensive history.
The second biggest castle complex in the Czech Republic is located there. The Český Krumlov Castle was originally built in the 13th century but it was renovated later on and some of its parts were finished in the 17th century. It consists of 40 palaces and other buildings, five courtyards and a charming garden with an area of 7ha. There are diverse collections of art available to see at the Castle.
Another interesting sight is the Roman Catholic church of St. Vitus which was built in the 13th century and occasionally hosts concerts of classical music. You can also visit the baroque Minorite Monastery from the 14th century which is still being used.
For the art lovers we recommend the Egon Schiele Art Centrum. It is home to collections of both classical and 20th century art. It even features the works of art legends such as Salvador Dalí or Pablo Picasso. Egon Schiele, whose work is displayed there as well, lived in the city.
A walk through the city will lead you to numerous renaissance buildings with fascinating original frescoes. Aside from that, the town also offers experiences such as blacksmithing or rafting and there is a bear moat at the Castle!
If you visit the city between the 14th of July and the 5th of August, you cannot miss the annual International Music Festival. You can listen to various shows of many different music genres ranging from classical to jazz and blues.
To visit the city you can book a one-day trip from Prague which also includes lunch at a traditional Czech restaurant. To find out more, go to: https://www.flights-to-prague.com/prague-tour/cesky-krumov-unesco/
