Cesky Krumlov..............

THE WHOLE CITY is an UNESCO World Heritage Site, famous for its Old Town, with 300 protected medieval buildings, and a castle complex which is the second largest in the Czech Republic.


Set in a pretty area, with the Vltava running through the City, its has narrow streets full of old townhomes, inns, shops, and cafes.

Located in the southwest part of the Czech Republic, its population is about 14,000 residents.

As the Old Town of Cesky Krumlov is a car free zone, we have parked our Car, and now I am going to explore the Old Town.

Please join me as a virtual touring companion, as we wander the old streets and discover Cesky Krumlov.

We begin our tour at TIP 1

This is the last Town we looked around in the Czech Republic.

Now on our 2011 European road trip, we are heading across the border and into Austria.

I hope you will be my virtual companion once again, as we travel the high mountain roads in Austria, visit Monasteries and beautiful towns in Austria, starting with FREIDSTADT

    Cesky Krumlov sounds like a great place to visit.
    Old baroque theatres are really fascinating, but they are seldom in such good condition as the one you describe.

    Enjoyed your page Dee, excellent photos. Missed CK during our week in Prague, as luck has it there is a day tour on our river cruise.

    Fabulous new page about this Czech gem. Cesky Krumlov has always been on my must-visit list, but up to now I haven't made it there.
