CESKY KRUMLOV (UNESCO) TOUR by car/ van/coach transfer
A full day trip from Prague to the beautiful medieval town of Cesky Krumlov.
Located in the south of the Czech Republic, Cesky Krumlov is protected by UNESCO as a world heritage site. It is one of the country's most attractive places to visit after Prague.
This excursion is part by air-conditioned car/van/coach, part on foot. After picking you up from your Prague hotel, we drive for around 21⁄2 hours through the scenic Bohemian countryside to reach Cesky Krumlov.We begin our guided walking tour with a stroll through the formal gardens and courtyards of Cesky Krumlov Castle, before walking down to explore the town's historic centre; the quaint old streets are lined with Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque houses once belonging to wealthy noblemen.There is then a few hours free time for you to browse the charming small shops, enjoy a stroll along the banks of the lovely winding river and choose a café or restaurant for lunch (lunch is not included in the price of the tour).
Next we turn our attentions back to Cesky Krumlov Castle, once the seat of powerful lords, the Rožmberks and the Schwarzenbergs. The main part of the castle is closed in the winter, however a fascinating exhibition opens in the oldest wing of the castle and in the tower.
These buildings date from the 13th century, so are worthy of a visit in their own right. But it is the items of great historical value contained within that interests us the most. Thus we embark on a guided visit to view the large paintings, frescos, ancient weapons, antique furniture, and intricate china, glassware and jewellery on display.And as the castle grounds remain open in the winter, by walking further through the gardens we are able to see the rest of the mighty Renaissance castle up close. After the castle, in the late afternoon, we commence our journey back to Prague.
