The Daily SHOOT! - Overlooking Cesky Krumlov

Overlooking Cesky Krumlov, originally uploaded by tgtwb.

Ahh... The Charming City of Cesky Krumlov - another UNESCO World Heritage Site, is notable for its well-preserved Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque architecture.

Just off Prague, Czech Republic, this quaint picture-postcard city of "Cesky" simply means Czech, or Bohemian, maintained its historic culture and character by stopping any major changes and demolition of the buildings / town since the 19th Century.

The picture was taken almost 4 years ago when TTT were in trotting Eastern Europe on big spirits and small budgets, but as far as we can remember, the city of Krumlov is a small but lively, cosmopolitan town surrounded by unspoiled countryside.

With a population of just over 15,000, CK is not overbearingly bustling like Prague or Vienna, but it does have its fair share of activities as you walk along narrow cobblestoned streets.

Dominated by a Castle stretching over the meandering Vltava River, this cosmetic town sports romantic nooks between Patrician houses where you can find attractive exhibits of world-renown artists and musicians... and depending on the time of year, festivals, concerts, and theatre performances are the major highlight in this city.

It was here that we also had one of the best pasta lunch we ever tried in Europe. The cosy inns, coffee shops, and ancient taverns are a treat that you cannot miss when visiting this charming city!
