Cesky Krumlov

October 25th

My first bit of travel within the Czech Republic was to Cesky Krumlov, a pretty medieval town in the south.

After an initial disaster, we needed to find accommodation for that night, as our accommodation was booked for the wrong date, and our bus home wasn't until the next day (homeless for the day?). We went to a restaurant for wifi and found a cheap but not so chic "ubytovna" to stay in. The restaurant was right on the river and it was such a pretty day so we couldn't help but laugh at our slight disaster

It was like stepping back in time, and it was such a gorgeous place. We went up to the castle, which had the prettiest views over the town and the river.

First things first, the castle had a BEAR. This felt like the most random thing ever, but its an old tradition in the castle.

I also liked the castle because it was such a different style to other ones I had seen, with the bricks being painted one, meaning it was more colourful.

That night we found the coolest little underground cocktail bar, which felt like we were drinking in a cave.

The next day after a nice brunch we met up with some friends who had arrived, and went to the Egon Schiele Gallery.

I think it is a shame that everyone just visits Prague, when theres gorgeous other towns like this.

And lastly, this bit of street art found among all the medieval prettiness.
