Ladies and gentlemen: Cesky Krumlov!

2013-11-14 14.08.03Please try to have a look at the pictures I took, cause if you are travelling to Prague you shouldn’t miss the chance to visit Cesky Krumlov, probably the most beautiful czech town (in Unesco list).
Actually my pictures couldn’t catch the proper beauty of this place, there is an atmosphere that even the highest technology (that I don’t have anyway…) can’t assimilate and record. Cesky Krumlov has to be seen with your own eyes, and the memory stored in your own heart.

Just a small ‘logistic’ advise, I’ve done only a short daily trip, which is very possible by catching a ‘student agency‘ bus from Prague bus station Na Knížecí (not the main bus station – Florenc). This is the best solution, a good and confortable bus, good price (less than 200czk – 8€). During peak season I’d recommend to book the ticket in advance.

2013-11-14 17.07.26 Spending a night in Cesky Krumlov is highly suggested, especially for a romantic experience, when in the city there won’t be big tourists’ groups.

There are many pensions and hostels for reasonable prices.

Restaurants are also in big numbers, I had the feeling that they were a bit adjusted to tourist tastes, as well as the majority of restaurant in Prague city centre, better to go somewhere off the beaten path if you want to try original tastes (this is valid always and everywhere).

One (only) day in Prague

2013-11-15 11.16.37I know it, I know it…only one day? In such beautiful city (probably one of the most beautiful european city)????

Yes, that’s the answer. I visited Prague so many times in the past that during this ‘central europe trip’ I dedicated only one day, actually only few hours to it.

I mostly wanted to meet a friend, italian, living in Prague and have a beer with him, after long time and…well you will see tomorrow why I wanted to go the czech capital… 🙂

In the meantime I hope you will enjoy the pictures below:
