Whistle is not quite accurate as I stayed six nights in Česky Krumlov having travelled by train all day with an early morning departure and arrival at my destination after four in the afternoon.
Česky Krumlov is the best preserved medieval European city that I have visited to date. The church stands on a high point and was build in 1407. Parts of the castle date back to the 12th Century and the burghers homes are flawlessly preserved opening on to cobbled streets. Many of the homes had beginnings in the Gothic style and then added a floor in Renaissance style to be topped by Baroque!
Enchanting is not sufficient to describe the city and its surrounding hills. I could have stayed here with ne’er a desire to depart which is actually what happened to many residents who were from foreign lands but now well settled into this community. I am definitely coming back here for a longer visit. But now a convenient shuttle service has delivered me to the Vienna airport for my flight back to Barcelona.
