About Cesky Krumlov
Český Krumlov, in Bohemia’s deep south, is one of the most picturesque towns in Europe. It’s a little like Prague in miniature – a Unesco World Heritage Site with a stunning castle above the Vltava River, an old town square, Renaissance and baroque architecture, and hordes of tourists milling through the streets – but all on a smaller scale; you can walk from one side of town to the other in 20 minutes.
We couldn’t walk fast with stroller in Cesky Krumlov because just like Prague old town, the road was made of cobbled stone, difficult to navigate the stroller. Alyssa also didn’t want to walk too much so we had to use the stroller.
When we reached the gate of the castle we found that Cesky Krumlov has even more fairy tale look than Prague. We walked leisurely along the castle and similar with Prague Castle the walk ascended up and we could see the view of the town from the castle.
We came out using the same door and went to explore the old town and had lunch at one of the restaurant.
