Located in the Czech Republic, Cesky Krumlov is a unique and extraordinary city that was first settled in the 15th century B.C.
Each nook and cranny of this unique gem surprises with something new to see and provides a wonderful insight into the history of Bohemia. For nearly 300 years, and up until the beginning of the 17th century, Bohemian Krummau was ruled by the House of Rosenberg. It was a time of much prosperity that in turn gave rise to many new and magnificent buildings in the centre of the town.
In 1992, it was designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and since then, it has shined out in all of its former glory. Most of the restoration work on the town’s ancient dwelling houses, churches and monastery complexes has now been fully completed.
Cesky Krumlov Castle features a special attraction with a long tradition. Since the end of the 16th century, a number of bears have lived within the castle grounds! Indeed, the castle’s large moat provides more space for these wonderful creatures than they would have in any zoo.
Cesky Krumlov is popular with visitors from all four corners of the world and it is, without a doubt, one of the finest and most well preserved treasures of European history.
