Do you speak Bohemian?

The historical town of Prague, Czech Republic, has become an increasingly popular tourist destination in recent years. The peaceful town square with its legendary clock and the breathtaking Charles bridge in the background is on the bucket lists of many. But if you want to experience something different in addition to your visit to Prague, it’s a good idea to check out the nearby local town of Cesky Krumlov.

Located in the South Bohemian region of the Czech Republic, the town carries an air of music and culture that is sure to engulf you. The castle of Cesky Krumlov marks itself as
a UNESCO World Heritage site with its 13th century Gothic and Renaissance architecture, acute alleyways and panoramic views from the bell tower. Also famous for its production of rare gemstones like moldavite (15 million year old stones, found exclusively in regions of Bohemia), you will often see the streets adorned with shops selling moldavite stones and jewelry. Do not forget to try the delicious cuisines at its many riverside restaurants. Very few things can beat the joy of eating by the river, with beautiful ducks accompanying you and watching adventurous kayakers pass by. Regardless of how many times you have visited the country, you can definitely bet on this modest Bohemian town for a refreshing Czech experience.
