Full description
Join me for a tour of Český Krumlov, the fairy-tale-like city full of charm and history. Considering the city suffered from decades of decay in the past, it is a miracle that it was possible to bring it back to its original Renaissance and Baroque look. Our tour starts at Svornosti Square, a picturesque square with its Virgin Mary pillar, Renaissance town hall and the adjacent Gothic Church of St. Vitus. Just a stone’s throw away, the tour takes us to the Jesuits Seminary garden, a true picture spot with magnificent views of the Krumlov castle and old town. Let’s hit off the beaten path alleys to finally reach the Vltava river side where we can overlook the impressive stone bridge and castle buildings. On the way, we can taste local beer or pastries. The Barber’s Bridge takes us to the crooked cobbled street of Latran. While admiring many of the original Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque houses at Latran, let's continue through the Red Gate directly to the castle or take a detour and visit the former Monastery of Minor monks. At the Český Krumlov castle, one gets astonished at the magic beauty of the castle tower and the curiosity of live bears kept at the moat. The 5 courtyards of the castle are the highlights of this tour. Admire breathtaking wall frescos dating back to 1600's. The final point, the icing of the cake, is the view of the old town and its terracotta roofs stretched around the meander of the Vltava river. Your sightseeing can continue to the Castle gardens.
