cesky krumlov

approx. 9-10 hours

 

This very unique town is almost entirely preserved since the renaissance period. It was once the capital of the entire Southern Bohemia region and the stronghold of the family - Lord of Roses. We visit the narrow historical streets adorned by many renaissance houses, the Old Town Hall situated on Market Square, a magnificence gothic church of St.Vitus where we can see the tombs of the last members of the Lords of Roses’ family, other baroque churches and picturesque squares.

Depending on our timing, we can visit the interiors of the Cesky Krumlov Castle which is situated on a high rock guarding the Vltava River. It used to be a residence of the Lords of Roses for centuries - the Eggenbergs and the Schwarzenbergs. Today it houses rich collections of furniture, pictures, china and historical artifacts. At least a walk through the outside courtyards of the castle is a must as you have a great view of the whole town from there. The castle gardens are also worth visiting and so is the very unique baroque theatre.

 

The Baroque Theatre of the Cesky Krumlov Castle dates back to the 17th century and represents a baroque stage in its mature form. Only one royal theatre in the world is comparable to the Krumlov Baroque Theatre and it is the Swedish Drottningholm theatre near Stockholm from 1766.

 

The Cesky Krumlov theatre was closed to the public from 1966 to 1997, and after the completion of a large part of the restoration it can be visited now but opening times and number of people is very limited.
