This pretty little town in Southern Bohemia has 13,000 people, is nestled on the Vitava River and is a bit of cuteness overload. While it leans slightly to the touristy side, it is well worth a comfortable stopover for a couple of nights. The weather is particularly warm, the flowers are blooming, the UNESCO listed castle offers terrific views and the food and excellent Moravian wine are being consumed at a steady rate. We had a most enjoyable time here in Cesky Krumlov.
Cesky Krumlov Castle built in 1240 was home to the powerful Rosenberg family and later to the Schwarzenbergs.
We arrived in Cesky Krumlov from Prague on a Flix bus. The company operates buses all over Europe. Our bus departed and arrived on time, the trip was comfortable, tickets were inexpensive, so I’ve booked to travel with them again from Cesky to Bratislava. Their online booking service is very user friendly.
