In the South Bohemia region of the Czech Republic, the historic centre of Český Krumlov, recognised by UNESCO as a world-heritage site, is famous for its Old Town, boasting 300 protected medieval buildings. Walk from one side to the other in just 20 minutes, discovering the popular picnic spots of this ‘miniature Prague’.
Founded in the 13th century, the city has very much retained its character, with a wonderful mix of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture, built beneath the second-largest castle complex in the Czech Republic, atop a rocky outcrop, carved by the Vltava river.
Surrounded by the rolling hills of the Šumava to the south and west, and the Blansko Forest to the north, the city’s cobblestone streets wind past centuries-old town homes, inns, shops, and cafés, just asking to be explored.
