Photo Story: Cesky Krumlov

One of my favorite excursions during my month abroad in the Czech Republic was a trip to the medieval town of Cesky Krumlov in southern Bohemia.

Detail: When you visit Cesky Krumlov, enjoy a typical medieval meal at U Dwau Maryi (The Two Marys), consisting of family plates of smoked chicken wings, potato dumplings, latkes, and lentil salad.

People: As you walk or even white water raft along the Vltava River, you will notice local artists with their easels set up along the river bank, painting the medieval skyline.

Event: Continuing your walk throughout the town, the song of live music from local artists playing guitars and flutes will urge you to twirl about and join the "gypsy" dancers.

Unique: Dancing in the streets will make you feel like a local, and may even be reminescent of medieval times, but do not forgot to embrace quirky tourist photo opportunities.

Vantage Point: Ultimately, your visit in Cesky Krumlov will conclude and you will have to leave this fairytale castle town, but you can always take the memories of this place with you.
