    The hsitoric Center ofCesky Krumlov is the perfect place to wander and discover something new at every corner. The side streets are narrow, the pavers are uneven and the people friendly at every turn…exactly how someone would image a 1000 year old village. There is so much character and charm throughout the village, it’s easy to get lost in your own thoughts…but not the village itself which is exceptionally small. Definitely a must see if visiting Prague or anywhere in the Czech republic.

    Not surprisingly Cesky Krumlov has a church to St. Vitus (as I think nearly every town does). But this one has taken 500 years to build and really is exceptionally pretty on the inside. It appears gothic in style (like large central naive) but also has elements of other styles throughout the ages. It’s not exceptionally large and one can have a good viewing of the church in about 30 minutes, so it definitely is worth a peek in while in Cesky Krumlov.

    We went to Cesky Krumlov for the day with a private guide who actually took us into the town via “the back door”….through the Castle Gardens. What a wonderful way to start our visit. Despite the terrible drought, the gardens were lush, flowering and full of color. The fountains were all blasting away and the breeze through the trees was delightful. When we exited, we obviously walked back through the garden, which offered up a second opportunity to take in their beauty before getting on the road for a drive back to Prague. (Also, there was no parking problems and little to no traffic…brilliant!!). Definitely enjoyed the gardens and would visit them again if the opportunity presented itself.

    The latran houses along the banks of the river in Cesky Krumlov are definitely worth a visit. Once factories, mills and houses for upclass nobles, they’re now boutique shops, restaurants and hotels….but they still have kept their overall charm. The streets are cobbled, the river is rushing past and even the old water wheel is turning. Definitely a fun way to enjoy the afternoon after a visit to the castle.

    It is right at the entrance of the city unless you come in behind and go straight to the castle from the marketplace. It is well built. You can rent kayaks just down beside the water.

    Cute (and free) little museum, showcasing some of the history of the region via its commercial products, more or less. There's actually quite a number of items, and the placards explaining the item collections are written in a few languages (including English). There's also a little gift shop section near the entrance/exit if you want to buy some replicas of old timey things.

    The church itself was converted into apartments a very long time ago, however the tower can still be accessed by the public and gives some impressive views of the city.

    When you visit this town be prepared to do plenty of walking. To visit the castle you need to be quite fit as it is a long climb but amazing when you get there.

    The beauty of the square is it it is a place you can recharge and rest your legs for a while. Surrounded by beautiful buildings which house restaurants, small shops and cafés you can get some food and drink to provide sustenance.

    It is beautifully maintained and provides some great photo opportunities. You can also get tourist information there.

    We came across this little Synagogue as we wandered about and were very impressed with it. Well worth seeing.

    This wasn’t the most friendly tourist information centre I’ve ever been to but it did its job.

    My advice is to go there before you start to climb up to the castle and so on so you can get the necessary information and understand the history more before you make the climb.

    The office is set on the main square and tucked away in the left-hand corner. It is a great facility with all the information you need to make your visit here worthwhile and meaningful.

    Another easy to stop and see portion of the town as you stroll through the old streets and through history at the same time.
