We moved up  from Prague to Český Krumlov which is described as a fairytale town.  Group Foto

Brief introduction:

It is added to the UNESCO List for its well-preserved Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque architecture.  The Český Krumlov Castle, built in the 13th century, is the second largest castle complex in Czech Republic after Prague castle.  Vltava River snakes through the town, making the inner historical center an island unto itself.

This is an upcoming tourist attraction which opened to public in 1988.  Český  is a small town with population of 14,600 ppl.  Český is also described a pocket-sized Prague but personally found that its more scenic.  Less crowd, greenier and cosy.   Walking from one end to another will take you less than 30 minutes to complete.

Journey to Český will take abt 3 ~ 3 1/2 hour from Florenc bus station as there’s a few stop-over to alight passenger. 

Suggestion:  Please buy ticket in advance as the timing which we wanted are SOLD OUT!!! on the departure day.  Thus we have to wait for about an hour doing nothing. Also due to the heavy rain.

Thr rain has stopped when we reached except for a short heavy shower. which left us shivering to our hostel.   But all these are worth while when the beautiful scenery appeared.

Upon our arrival at our hostel, Krumlov House. The staffs there are friendly and advising us what we can do in Český.  We are informed that Český is also good for river sport.  However, weather is cold and time did not permit us to do so as we only have one day 😦

I love to travel in FALL. Not only for the weather but also to see the leaves changed its color.

It was my 1st time doing research thus felt that i did not have detailed planning.   Miss the castle tour and explore the surrounding 😦   

One day is definitely not enough to cover.  Hope to visit again.
