A two day sightseeing tour to the beautiful medieval town of Cesky Krumlov, with overnight hotel accommodation included in the price of the trip.
Located in the south of the Czech Republic, Cesky Krumlov is protected by UNESCO as a world heritage site. It 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.
We begin our guided walking tour with a stroll through the formal gardens and courtyards of Cesky Krumlov Castle. We then walk down into the town's historic centre, where the quaint old streets are lined with Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque houses once belonging to wealthy noblemen.
At 12:30 we stop at a local restaurant for a 3 course lunch. This includes a choice of 4 main courses (with a vegetarian option).
After lunch there is free time to explore the town. There are charming small shops and cafés to discover, plus a lovely winding river to walk by.
Next, we begin our guided visit of the main attraction, the mighty Renaissance Cesky Krumlov Castle, once the seat of powerful lords, the Romberks and the Schwarzenbergs. The castle houses a rich collection of paintings, period furniture, Flemish tapestries, historical weapons, and intricate china, glassware and jewellery.
Afterwards, we check into a nice 3* hotel for the overnight stay (4* hotel is available for a supplement).
