Highlights of Cesky Krumlov Day Trip
We entered old town from back of the castle and then walked right through the cloak Bridge. So, from there our journey in this gorgeous town begins.
Cesky Krumlov literally looks like something out of a fairy tale which makes us feel like walking in an old Disney film. The town is surrounded by beautiful Vltava River.
Cesky Krumlov Castle
We started with a hike to castle. It is an easy one. It is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved castles in Europe. The Castle remains to this day to be the town’s most visited attraction.
It is magnificent with its stunning exterior. The castle offers many striking sights and our favorite was the colorful round tower. To grab its full charm we had climb 162 steps to the top, from there we had amazing 360 degree view.
The castle is huge and we explored every bit of it. We found so many view points from where we had the most picture perfect views of this magical and gorgeous town.
The Medieval Town Square
In the center of Cesky Krumlov is the medieval Town Square. It perfectly features the design of smaller Czech towns from the middle Ages. Medieval town squares features colorful houses, famous Plague Column, Old Town Hall and Torture Museum.
This is impressive place to visit. We relaxed ourselves with a coffee and took some photographs. We also enjoyed delicious ice cream in our later walks through the center.
You’ve probably seen it before in the photographs of this beautiful town. It is one of the most picturesque buildings of Cesky Krumlov. Also it is one of the second highest point of Cesky Krumlov to have bird eye view of the city after castle.
It depends on what time of the year you visit, if lucky you might be able to go into the church and explore it.
We recommend for the best views, head towards the river directly beside the church. And for extreme photographing experience you look it out from castle.
Exploring the Medieval Streets
We have saved this for the last. Without a doubt, one of the best things to do in Cesky Krumlov is to explore many quiet & historic streets by just wondering throughout the entire Old Town.
It’s not hard to find out why so many people call Cesky Krumlov a “mini-Prague”. Most of the buildings are brightly red painted and there is something beautiful and impressive at every turn. The best way enjoy Cesky Krumlov is by getting lost in streets.
