Francesky Krumlov

cesky_krumlov_let

Just a quick posting on Cesky Krumlov so I can catch up – I am running several cities behind now.  Cesky Krumlov is a small medieval village about a three hour bus ride from Prague.  Francesca had been there over ten years ago and loved it so she wanted to take me.

Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate and because it was low season much of it was closed, but I still thought it was spectacular and hope to go back one day in the spring or summer.

Here are a few photos from Cesky Krumlov – the one above is a classic stock photo of Cesky Krumlov in nice weather (note: all other photos in this or any other posting were taken my me or Francesca unless otherwise stated). 🙂

Cesky Krumlov Castle

cesky food

Traditional Czech meal – Pork and dumplings (“knedliky”) the Czech traditional side dish made from wheat or potato flour, boiled in water as a roll and then sliced and served hot.

Amazing gardens on the Castle grounds.  Someone in the Tourist Information booth in town had told us that it was closed, but we went anyway and it turned out to be open!

cesky restaurant

We ate a HUGE meal of various grilled meats in a medieval restaurant called Krcma v Satlavske.  And then our kidneys promptly shut down.

Then it was off to bed and off to Salzburg the next morning.
