About Cesky Krumlov
Untouched during the era of communist Czechoslovakia, Cesky Krumlov has a unique collection of over 300 listed buildings from the Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque periods, which is why it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is packed with museums, galleries and excellent restaurants. Throughout the year there are concerts, festivals and other events to enjoy. As a result it is one of the Czech Republic's main tourist destinations, popular both with budget travellers who stay in the local hostels and with visitors who enjoy the unique comfort of hotels in converted ancient buildings.
