Cesky Krumlov

Dominated by a stunning gothic castle, this town in the South Bohemian region of the Czech Republic is one of the most picturesque places in Europe and has been dubbed both a ‘mini-Prague’ and a Middle Age fairy-tale.

Well preserved, having escaped the bombings of WW2, the entire place has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can walk from one side of town to the other within half an hour, which is a delight in itself, and all the way will be spotting ancient town squares, narrow streets crammed with gorgeous baroque architecture and lively hang-outs. Climb the castle tower for the best views, and witness the beautiful historical buildings nestled amongst the greenery with the glistening river meandering through it.

Particularly magical in the winter, when the crowds are gone and the castle is blanketed in snow, we think Cesky Krumlov is the ideal weekend break for those needing a change of pace, a visual treat, and the chance to experience somewhere a little less known. You can also visit as a day trip from Prague (but we don’t think that’s enough time to truly do it justice).
