Located in South Bohemia, Cesky Krumlov is one of the most picturesque towns in Europe and was one of the first sites in the Czech Republic to be named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It features a lively old town, lovely Renaissance and baroque architecture, the magnificent Church of St. Vitus, and a stunning castle towering over the Vltava River. This medieval town is a popular—though long—day trip from Prague, but makes an even better overnight trip.
Cesky Krumlov is small—you can walk from one side of town to the other in about half an hour. Visit as part of a daylong group or private tour from Prague, or join an overnight tour that offers plenty of time to explore on your own plus a stop in nearby Ceske Budejovice.
