Cesky Krumlov is a quaint historical town where you can immense yourself. Walking through the alley you can discover different little shops that sells unique things. The houses within Cesky Krumlov i.e. artictecture is another great attraction. Different style different beauty. There is also a river around it where you can canoe and dip yourself in. An excellent place to destress and enjoy yourself to the very best. There is also nice local restaurant where you can get great food. The Tavern lunch is something that you must try. Apart from that I love the castle, I explored different parts of it and even visit an exhibition. Don't miss any corner or part of Cesky Krumlov, they are a gem by its own.

Český Krumlov is such a beautiful town! This activity is a must to do when someone is visiting Czech Republic. It was such a nice experience visiting this awesome place. Also, our guide was fantastic. It was very difficult to coordinate with the tour operator and to get to the meeting point, but fortunately we could find an operator employee to help us and get a bus for our trip. Thanks God that the tour operators collaborate among each other!
