A Pearl of Renaissance Architecture: Český Krumlov
Walking the crooked alleys in the most romantic Czech town Český Krumlov is definitely a remarkable experience. Hidden in the foothills of Šumava mountain range, the town entered the UNESCO Heritage List for its cultural and urbanism value.
Upon the arrival to the town, you will be captivated at first glance by the monumental panorama of the chateau here, which rises above architecture. This historic landmark is ranked among the largest complexes in Central Europe. The area includes five castle courtyards and vast castle garden surrounded by 40 houses. Its oldest part dates back to 13th century. The uniqueness of the complex lies in its baroque theatre with the preserved collection of costumes, stage set and stage equipment.
Next to the maze-like alleys, magical gardens and lavish facades of town houses, it boasts medieval pubs, ale-houses, galleries and graphite mines.
Český Krumlov is also famous for its unique revolving theatre in the gardens of the city's extensive castle. An emotive experience lies in the romantic night performances which makes you feel almost as if you touched the stars.
