    Daytrip to Cesky Krumlov

    Krumlov is definitely the most beautiful of southern Bohemia's quaint towns. Most people come for a day and stay a week. It’s that enchanting! It boasts the second-largest castle complex in the Czech Republic, a unique Baroque theater, and a picturesque medieval town center with cobblestone streets.  Besides the castle, there are a number of smaller sights (the city museum, the museum of marionettes, and the Egon Schiele Center, etc.). Since the town is so pleasant, I strongly recommend spending the night-or two or three. However, if you are limited time, a day trip is better than nothing.
    Distance: approx. 118 miles (note: take the bus and not the train)

    cesky krumlov from the castle

    cesky krumlov is a very worth while side trip when in prague. by train you go to ceske budejovice then connect to cesky krumlov. the trip takes about 3 1/2 hours. you can easily see cesky krumlov in an over night stay. i suggest leaving prague early and get there in the early afternoon and spend the night. spend the following morning in cesky krumlov and return to prague in the afternoon. this will give you plenty of time to see the sites of cesky krumlov. this is one of the most beautiful medieval towns in europe and should be included when planing a trip to prague. see my cesky krumlov pages for more information.

    It located in the teritory of Prague's castle. The word "strahovati" in czech means "protect". In ancient times the monastery was out of castle's walls and its function was to protect walls of castle where kings lived. Now in buildings of monastery is an exposition halls where people can enjoy of Czech historical art (mainly of religious themes).

    Impressive Trip to Cesky Krumlov - Outside Prague

    Cesky krumlov

    This is another guided day excursion we took during Christmas. (About 10 hours)

    Cesky Krumlov is located in scenic Southern Bohemia along the banks of River Vltava (outside Prague).

    You will find the Cesky Krumlov Castle, the second largest Castle after Prague Castle. Unfortunately the Castle was closed, but we had the chance to wander around the territory taking stunning pictures.

    It's a place full of medieval character and very beautiful. Another worthwhile visit.

    There are many tour agencies in Wenceslas Square offering services to Cesky Krumlov.

    Please browse through my travelogue page for some pictures of Cesky krumlov.

    I went to Cesky Krumlov for two days and loved it. CK is a medivial city with a beautiful castle, as shown below. It's only about 3 hours by train from Prague. But watch out - it can be VERY tourist-filled.

    Also, if you're a beer fan, you can take a tour of the Budweiser (budvar) factory in Cesky Budejovice. Unfortunately, it was closed when I went.

    Castle clock tower

    A great day out in this little town. Lots of things to see including the castle with its bears!
    Plenty of cafes, restaurants and places to rest especially in the Old Square.
    Take your walking boots, plenty of camera opportunities.

    Monks of the Strahuv monastery collected documents and books and as a result now the biggest museum of writing is here in libraries of Strahov monastery. The decoration of libraries are amazing.

    We spent a day and travelled to Cesky Krumlov. It was beautiful, scenic and I was able to purchase reasonably priced handcrafted souvenirs.
