5. From Prague: Český Krumlov Christmas Town Tour with Lunch
Experience one unforgettable Advent day with your guide and travel to the beautiful town of Český Krumlov – a Renaissance pearl of south Bohemia, inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Once upon a time, Český Krumlov was one of the most important towns of the Czech Kingdom dating back to the 12th century. Český Krumlov was the seat of famous noble families, the Rožmberks, Eggenbergs and especially the Schwarzenbergs. The castle, which proudly towers over the Vltava River, is the second largest in the Czech Republic after Prague Castle
Český Krumlov, a uniquely preserved Renaissance town with over 300 UNESCO-listed buildings, is stunning in every season. But visiting the city at Christmastime is simply an unforgettable experience. The city slows down and becomes the embodiment of the peace and poetry of the upcoming Christmas holidays.
The aroma of Christmas punch and mulled wine drifts from restaurants and stands and you can taste many local delicacies, Christmas biscuits, and grilled sausages at Christmas markets against the backdrop of the festively decorated city. But not only that. The city is full of picturesque shops, small galleries, and other attractions, and history is literally breathing down your neck at every turn. After all, where else can you buy a new handbag in a shop decorated with 16th-century frescoes?
As the sun sets, the city is illuminated by thousands of lights and the majestic Christmas tree on the main square. Advent Český Krumlov will be etched in your memory and you will look forward to returning over and over again.
