Located at the square of the Cesky Krumlov castle. A small fountain. Not many tourist were here when the time we came due to the raining weather. Visited on Nov 2017.

This is a beautiful square, surrounded by small shops and cafes. It provided a different feeling, as it offered a spacious view of the square as opposed to the narrow cobble-stoned streets. The Plague Column is worth a visit.
