Being a big defender of little towns, I’ve always found small villages undeniably charming. Their cute tinniness and a peaceful, slow pace calm my soul, soothe my heart and put a huge happy smile on my face. Cesky Krumlov — probably the most known of all the unknown “secret gems” in Eastern Europe — is famous for being cute. We’ve all heard why: the UNESCO heritage town and the second busiest tourist place after Prague, Cesky Krumlov never disappoints anybody.
So I mean, I knew it would be beautiful when I went there. But I didn’t expect this:
Located just 3 hours away from Prague (there’s a direct bus), the town is a perfect destination for a day trip. There’s not too much to see, though — a castle and a few churches, basically — so I spent most of my time there just walking along the narrow streets and enjoying the magic.
