Cesky Krumlov - a fairy-tale city, is located in the south of the country, close to the Czech-Austrian border. In 1993 the city received a status of a city-reserve and got under UNESCO protection. After the reconstruction Cesky Krumlov was given a second life and looks exactly the same as it did in the 15-16th centuries.
Bright facades of the renaissance buildings, colorful graffiti on the walls, narrow tortuous streets, magnificent Cesky Krumlov Castle and fairy-tale atmosphere of the surroundings amazed Hans Christian Andersen who visited the city in 1831 and 1851. The city was a source of inspiration to the writer. Not far from the city one can see a romantic Hluboka nad Vltavou Castle - a beautiful replica of a Windsor Castle.
Cesky Krumlov is a miraculously preserved medieval town, lost in time. Every street and even every building has a mysterious story or a legend – magical and romantic or scary and dramatic.
Distance: 173 km away from Prague, ~2.15 h. by car.
The visit to the city is a part of the excursion to Hluboka nad Vltavoy Castle.
