The cute Cesky Krumlov … [Czech Republic]

Cesky Krumlov is around 2.5hr drive from Prague and I would highly recommend a visit if your schedule permits. I had used a bus and could not stop at many points on the way 😦 If you can rent a car that is even better.

We went in December and as expected, it was very cold 🙂 The skyline of Cesky Krumlov, as can be seen in this picture, is very nice.

When you walk through the Old Town, you can see cute stores like this one …

A smaller version of the Christmas Markets of Prague … It was a pleasant walk through the various stalls, as we tried some drinks and bought some souvenirs.

The Old Town has an intricate maze of streets like these … Though I felt that Cesky Krumlov was crowded, it was nothing compared to the crowds in Prague.

Some of the buildings were just Wow! … I loved the architecture.

Trdelnik! It was everywhere … We tried the basic version, without ice-cream or any other condiments.

Bohemian glass-works … I did not buy any as it was tough to carry around with me.

The river Vltava flows through Cesky Krumlov and it is the same river we see in Prague as well. Vltava is the longest river in Czech Republic.

The pretty souvenirs were very tempting … I had to keep an eye on the weight I was carrying around.
