On a horseshoe bend of the Vltava River in South Bohemia, Ceský Krumlov is a small, beautifully preserved medieval town that has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1992. Most of its structures were built from the 14th to the 17th centuries in an assortment of Gothic, Renaissance and baroque styles. Typical of Central European medieval towns, its narrow cobbled streets radiate out from a central square surrounded by burghers’ houses. The 13th century pastel-towered castle across the river is the second largest castle in the Czech Republic.
