Český Krumlov: Renaissance Pearl of Southern Bohemia - 11 hour Private Day Trip

Take a spectacular day trip from Prague to Cesky Krumlov, passing through the beautiful Southern Bohemia countryside to a fabled town of UNESCO World Heritage sites. With a winding river through its center, Cesky Krumlov offers Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque houses, streets and charming squares, and a lofty Renaissance-era castle tower dominating the skyline. Your historian guide helps you explore while sharing stories of the town’s cast of characters, including the murderous, illegitimate son of Emperor Rudolph II and the expressionist artist, Egon Schiele, who scandalized locals with his unconventional art and lifestyle. On this private tour, we offer you several personal choices. The Castle is a must. But it is up to you (and the time of year) if we schedule visits at the best-preserved Baroque theater in Europe, the Castle interiors, the stunning Baroque Castle Gardens or devote an hour to perusing the Egon Schiele Museum (an unexpected gem of a collection for modern art lovers).
