Cesky Krumlov

The historical goodness continued in Cesky Krumlov, a UNESCO Heritage Listed Town south of Prague.

After the train ride there, The Man and I (sporting dreadful beanie-hair) stopped for a coffee while we waited for our guided tour to start. It was a cute cafe; the owner was obviously a bit of a collector as there were some great collections of coffee grinders, clocks and sewing tables.

Now being quite the fans of walking tours, we signed up for another one, this time with a lovely local lady who had witnessed the town rise out of neglect and hardship into a beautifully restored national treasure.

Despite the impressive the restorations were, it was actually really good to see one of the few remaining unrestored buildings to put the whole process into context. It’s charming in its own way, don’t you think?

The view from the top of the belltower was definitely worth the climb!

Unfortunately much of the castle is closed in winter for safety reasons (there’s normally heavy snow that time of year) and due to the fact that it’s unheated.

Thankfully we were still able to enjoy the museum which chronicled 600+ years of local history, in an interior had been reproduced in its original style. I’m quite fond of historical buildings that are set up as if the owners have just stepped out of the room, I find it makes it so much more realistic.

I’m so pleased we ventured off the major city route to visit Cesky Krumlov, if only briefly. We ¬†hopped on the train back to our base in nearby Ceske Budejovice.
