Visiting A Fairy Tale Village in the Czech Republic
This past winter as I was looking at a map, I happened upon a small medieval village from the 1200’s south of Prague on the way to Vienna. It’s called Cesky Krumlov.
As it turns out, it’s a little fairy tale city. Surrounded by a river that snakes through it, untarnished by both world wars.
Red roofs. Green domes. Little waterfalls. Rich green hillsides surrounding it.
I have found most castles to be in ruins, unfinished or just unimpressive. We climbed the colorful castle tower, built in the 1200’s and oozing with charm, for spectacular views.
This is a largely undiscovered gem. Next time, I would spend two days and go whitewater rafting around the city.
It was a thrill to walk around every corner for an unexpected surprise. The restaurant had original floors from the 1400’s. Our room was up some funky staircase winding around through multiple doors. It helped that we finally had sun and high clouds.
So happy we took a chance on this town. Smiles around every turn. Good Czech food. Inexpensive. And very quiet at night after the day tripping people leave.
If we strained out our tiny window and ignored the infant screeching, we could see everything lit up.
Love to all!!
