 About:

This charming town experienced its greatest prosperity during the rule of the Lords of Rožmberk (1302-1602), who chose Český Krumlov to become the seat of their kingdom. At this time, Krumlov lay on the crossroads between the Czech, Austrian, Bavarian and Northern Italian lands. You can see the influence of these different cultures that have left their mark on the city and Castle with the brushstrokes of the Italian Renaissance.

At the end of the 17th century, during the reign of the House of Eggenberg, Castle Baroque Theater was built and the Castle Gardens were renovated. Under the rule of the House of Schwarzenberg, Český Krumlov gained its Baroque appearance. Cesky Krumlov's Old Town has not experienced major changes since the 19th century, other than the demolition of the city's fortification walls and guard towers, and has maintained its historical character. Český Krumlov and the UNESCO World Heritage Site is a lively, cosmopolitan city with a unique atmosphere surrounded by unspoiled countryside.

Dominated by a Castle stretching over the meandering Vltava River, Český Krumlov's narrow cobblestone streets wind along romantic nooks between patrician houses where you will find attractive exhibits of world-renowned artists, music festivals and concerts, and theatre performances. The cosy inns, coffee shops, and ancient taverns entertain a diverse international crowd.
