Storybook Český Krumlov, Czech Republic

Český Krumlov is a medieval town built around an iconic castle in the south of the Czech Republic. In the center of Bohemia, this picturesque village is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and can be reached by a beautiful trip through sunflowers fields in the countryside. I had the pleasure of visiting this magical storybook town and wanted to share some of the sights I saw.

Since being built in the late 13th Century, the town and castle have stood proudly among the agricultural fields surrounding it.

The city has uniform architecture and the red roofs provide an amazing contrast to the rolling green hills in the background. Gorgeous red flowers hung from window baskets along the beautiful cobblestone streets.

We weren’t alone, but the town was quiet. I love the boutique shops of small European villages.

We refreshed from the heat by taking a river raft trip around the city. You can rent boats from a variety of shops by the river and it was pretty inexpensive. The city is surrounded by a river/moat, so the whole trip was a loop.

In the middle of river rafting was a pit stop with beach volleyball, club music and MOJITOS!

The city offered amazing 360 degree views of the castle, which it was built around.
