Cesky Krumlov is wrapped in a time warp. The elegant Central Square and hill top castle complex date back to the Medieval era, while the beautifully restored architecture harks back to the Renaissance and Gothic eras. The Vltava River flows through the town and nothing is more enjoyable than a tranquil boat ride along the riverbanks in the summer. A stroll down the winding alleys and narrow cobble-stoned streets will lead to ancient Burgher houses replete with coats of arms, charming sidewalk cafes and local pubs which serve the famous locally brewed beer.
Cesky Krumlov’s name originates in the German phrase "krumme aue" (crooked meadow), which became Krumlov. In the period after the Velvet Revolution, Cesky Krumlov became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and today it is a picture postcard town with a vibrant cultural scene. The castle complex and historic center has several excellent museums and galleries, which tell its vivid history, while the exquisite Baroque theatre hosts several performances of repute.
