Český Krumlov is located in the South Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. It’s a small, well-preserved medieval city about 175 km south of Prague and Old Český Krumlov is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 13th century Český Krumlov Castle rises high above a town that is filled with Renaissance-era buildings.
The central part of the town is built around the base of the castle on the horseshoe bend of the Vltava River. The historical town center, with its small narrow lanes, is a car-free zone. While there are still a few delivery vehicles driving through, you can walk through the city center and explore streets filled with traditional shops, galleries, restaurants and pubs.
There are outdoor cafes, museums and nice hotels surrounding the large town square. It’s a beautiful place to spend a few days exploring but it can also be reached by river cruisers on excursions from the Danube River itineraries.
