Cesky Krumlov
tips & insights


Cesky Krumlov dates back to the 13th century, but the space was first settled at least 7,000 years ago.

Cultural events

They abound. The two best:

Celebration of the Rose

Takes place in mid June. Traditionally costumed knights, musicians and jugglers enliven the streets.

International Music Festival

Runs from mid July to late August. Features music of different styles and periods.

Best photo spots

The castle's tower and Chad Bridge offer a great vantage of the town.

So does the view from Horni street, but here your camera captures the town and castle simultaneously.

The Lazebnicky (barber's) bridge provides a riveting upward view of the castle, as do several nearby restaurants with outdoor seating along the river.

Finally, you can take classic shots of the castle's round tower framed by houses as you walk down some streets.
