In the place where the small town of Cesky Krumlov was founded, the Vltava river makes two sharp bends. The riverbed made it possible to create reliable fortifications, and at the same time control an important trade route through Bohemia.

The historical center of the city of Czech Krumlov has preserved the appearance of the city of the 18th century, although in many places houses from the medieval period have also been preserved. It made reasonable to add the city of Cesky Krumlov to the UNESCO cultural heritage lists.

The city is dominated by low cliffs where historical buildings have been preserved. In these places where are observation decks where you can enjoy beautiful views of the roofs of old houses with red tiles.

Despite the very small size of the old town, a walk through it will take at least two days, especially if you want to see in detail all five courtyards of Krumlov castle. They are of great interest. You can spend at least as much time walking in the Upper and Lower parks.
