Cesky Krumlov is a hidden gem of Europe. Although tourism has begun to swarm this charming municipality, the medieval ambiance is still prevalent. The Pension Marie is indicative of the old-fashioned atmosphere of this delightful community. We arrived in a car rental on an uncharacteristic hot and humid July afternoon, but had to carry (about a one mile hike) our luggage from the parking facility around the central city island hamlet because the main bridge was under re-construction. However, once on the island, the location was tremendous, check in was swift, and the price was very reasonable considering we rented a huge, two bedroom suite directly above the outdoor restaurant and overlooking the city. We booked the room well in advance, and I think it may have been the pearl of the pension! The restaurant is very good and the beer was fantastic, but that's pretty much the norm in Czech Republic. Don't be fooled by Czech brewed Budweiser beer, though. It's good, but you won't be conjuring up thoughts of the Clydesdales trotting in the snow! Something you should know - there is no air conditioning, so on a hot night you will want to open the windows. Partying goes on well into the night just a few yards from the hotel, so bring ear plugs. However, if the night is cool (which is the norm), the windows are double paned and you can barely hear anything outside. Great place to stay! Hint - before leaving the U.S., rent the video "One Survivor Remembers", and If you are driving, when you leave Cesky Krumlov, take a side trip to Volary and see the cemetery that serves as a memorial to the victims of the Women's Death March during WWII.
