cesky_krumlov_castle_czech _tourism_cCesky Krumlov trip June 7th to 9th (IVRPA conference, Prague 2015)

Cesky Krumlov is a Unesco-heritage site. The pleasant town surrounded by the river Vltava / Moldau and the impressive castle form a unique whole. Architecture from Gothic through Renaissance, the surrounding hills with forests, the car-free streets and the many outdoor restaurants all add to the charm. A visit to the castle and especially the outstanding baroque theatre is recommended. The local brewery Eggenberg is open for excursions too. Canoe and hiking trips are easily arranged.

The trip will be by bus. Three hours initial walking city tour with a local guide (English) is included, otherwise the time will be on your own. Jeffrey Martin (360cities) and Pavel Vesely (alternatives.cz) will join the trip and offer advice.
