A full day winter sightseeing tour to the beautiful medieval town of Cesky Krumlov.
Located in the south of the Czech Republic, Cesky Krumlov is protected by UNESCO as a world heritage site and is one of the country's most attractive places to visit after Prague.
This sightseeing tour is part by air-conditioned coach, part on foot.
After picking you up from your Prague hotel, we drive for around 2˝ hours through the scenic Bohemian countryside to reach Cesky Krumlov.
Cesky Krumlov castle was once the seat of the powerful lords the Romberks and the Schwarzenbergs. The main part of the castle is closed in the winter, however a fascinating exhibition is open in the oldest wing of the castle, and in the tower.
These buildings date from the 13th century, so are worth a visit in themselves, but mainly for the items of great historical value contained within. So we embark on a guided walking tour to view the large paintings, frescos, ancient weapons, antique furniture, intricate jewellery, glassware and china on display.
The castle grounds also remain open in the winter, so our tour includes a walk through the gardens to see the rest of the mighty Renaissance castle up close.
A good lunch in a medieval tavern is included in the trip, after which we take a stroll through the quaint old streets of Cesky Krumlov, lined with Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque houses. These ancient buildings once belonged to wealthy noblemen.
There are many small shops and cafés to discover in Cesky Krumlov, plus a lovely winding river to stroll by. There is free time to explore before we head home.
