Photo Tour - Cesky Krumlov

As a final installment to the posts on my Czech Republic adventures, i thought i would share with you something quite beautiful - Cesky Krumlov.

Purely by accident, it turned out to be another town that had received a UNESCO World Heritage listing (if you read my post on Bath, UK you'll know what i mean). Cesky Krumlov is a very well preserved Medieval Town on the Vltava river and it is a gorgeous place. It is a few hours outside Prague but well worth a visit. By joining a tour i got to sit back, relax, enjoy the views of the country go by and meet a few people.

Below are some photos from the grounds of the Castle and around town. Unfortunately no photos were allowed inside the castle (you should have seen our guide go nuts at one tourist who tried to take photos - scary!) But the Castle is well preserved and they have gone to a lot of effort to keep it in a state as you would have seen it many moons ago. One of my favourite sites is the Masquerade Hall.

Anyway - without further ado, enjoy the photos!

The interesting thing is that all those bricks you see are actually painted on.
