Cesky Krumov is small South Bohemia town, that situated only 20 kilometers from the Austrian border, it is like walking through a fairy tale, best known for the fine architecture and art of the historic old town and Cesky Krumlov Castle. Its buildings haven't changed much since the 1700s, and you'll want to stay here a couple days and remain stuck in time. More travelers are discovering this quaint hamlet on the Vltava River, and some would complain Cesky Krumlov is becoming too touristy, but it's still worthwhile visiting here.
Krumlov Castle is unusually large and fine for a town of Krumlov's size. Within the Czech Republic it is second only to the castle complex of Prague.
Krumlov Castle comprises a amazingly preserved Baroque theatre (completed 1766), complete with original stage machinery, scenery and props: one of only a few such theatres that still exist (others at Drottningholm and Gripsholm, Sweden). Due to its age, the theatre is only used once a year, when a Baroque opera is performed in simulated candlelight.
Cesky Krumlov is the Czech Republic's significant cultural center, hosting a number of festivals and other events each year.
