cesky krumlov

cesky krumlov was established in the late 13th century at a ford on the vltava river. in 1302 the town and castle was bought by the house of rosenberg. in 1602 emperor rudolf II bought cesky krumlov and gave it to his son julius d' austria. later emperor ferdinand gave the town to the house of eggenberg. from 1719 to 1945 the castle was owned by the house of schwarzenberg. over the centuries these three dynasties built many of cesky krumlov's beautiful gothic, renaissance, and baroque buildings. in 1945 cesky krumlov became part of communist czechoslovakia and between 1945 and 1989 the town and castle fell into disrepair. since 1989 the town has been restored and today it is a UNESCO world hertage site.

cesky krumlov is the second most visited town in the czech republic after prague. this beautiful medieval village is a must see site in the czech republic. many people visit cesky krumlov on day trips from prague but i recommend spending the night. cesky krumlov has a number of good hotels and restaurants. it takes a full day to see all the attractions of the town. the historic district of cesky krumlov is small and gets crowded with tourists. if possible visit the town during the week when it is less crowded.
