I loved everything about Krumlov. It is a fairytale village. I could spend a week wondering the street and back alleys taking in breathtaking sights.

I had the opportunity to spend an entire month in this small city and the sights were amazing from the first day till the last one. Totally worth visiting it!

We came across the centre which was full with Christmas market stalls. They were so different to other markets we had seen in other parts of Europe and we ended up buying a lot! Also a great hot chocolate with cream!

The Christmas market is in the town square. It is a small market with lots of food stalls which enable you to sample different treats from the area. We have a souvenir mug from the gluhwein we bought here. There are also some stalls with hand made items and Christmas ornaments. The setting for the market beneath the UNESCO Cesky... More

Drive around 2 hours from Prague. This is a must visit if you travel to Czech. Oh my, very very beautiful! Go to the point before bridge where you can see the city from top, super beautiful. The castle, quite good, but not breath-taking in my opinion. Spend a day here, and you will have beautiful memory to remember.

This city was a surprise stopover when driving from Vienna to Salzburg. It was one of the highlights of the trip.
