How Far from?
This medieval town is located in the southern part of the Czech Republic. It has many well preserved sites that were fortunate enough to not be damaged during the Second World War, therefore the town is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

It is thought that the first settlement in this area dates back to the Stone Ages. Cesky Krumlov has had a colourful history through the ages. Having prospered up until the 17th century, it underwent a grim period as a result of the Thirty Year War.

Today the town has much to offer visitors. The Cesky Krumlov Castle is the second biggest castle in the country. The Gothic construction has two guided tours to choose from, and a tower from which beautiful views over the area can be seen. Entry to the gardens is free, which are also worth wandering around in.

Children will enjoy the bear moat which surrounds the castle, where they can watch bears swimming in the water. Bears have been kept in the castle grounds since the 16th century.

There is further entertainment during the Five-Petalled Rose Celebrations which take place every year during the third weekend of June, where locals celebrate the town’s history.
