Český Krumlov is a beautiful historical town located in Southern Bohemia in the Czech Republic. The center of this lovely town is situated on the Vltava River and has dozens of Renaissance and Baroque buildings, an old-town square and is dominated by a spectacular castle, which ranks among the most important historic sights in the central European region.
Together with the Church of St. Vitus, which boasts 15th century frescoes, the second biggest complex of the castle in the Czech Republic creates beautiful scenery of the whole region. Český Krumlov has changed little in its appearance since the 19th century and in 1992, it was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
With its narrow cobblestone streets, romantic hideaways and a unique complex of historical buildings it is not only a town of immense historical heritage, but also a place of art, culture and festivals (Egon Shiele Art Centre or beer tasting in the local brewery), which attracts tourists from all over the world. It is a unique historical city which will take your breath away with its magic fairytale-like atmosphere.
