Let the picturesque Český Krumlov enchant you

Winding romantic streets, a beautiful castle towering over the meandering Vltava River, a unique complex of old townhouses, pubs, cafes, and medieval taverns with many tourists from all over the world. This is Český Krumlov, a town with a unique atmosphere, surrounded by untouched nature.

This exceptional architectural jewel, located 180 km south of Prague, earned its inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1992.


The development of the town, which was built mainly in the 16th century over the Vltava River, also brought with itself the creation of an extensive complex of castle buildings, which is the second largest in the Czech Republic after the Prague Castle. This complex is the historical seat of the Rožmberk family and includes a number of palace buildings including the famous ballroom, a unique Baroque theater, the castle garden with the rococo Neptune Fountain, the Bellarie Summer Palace, and a gazebo with a revolving auditorium where summer theater performances are held.
