 Krumlov Castle at night

Cesky Krumlov is a medieval city in the south west of the Czech Republic and is one of Europe’s prettiest and most picturesque towns. With beautiful, baroque period architecture, cobbled streets, and lovely riverside views, you can understand why its Old Town is designated as a World Heritage Site, and why it is a popular destination for backpackers and tourists.

It is the castle of Cesky Krumlov that draws this attention to the city. The castle is a large one that dates through several time periods, displaying features on its grounds that include a rococo garden, a central fountain, and a bridge over a deep drop in the rock face that the castle is built on. Cesky Krumlov Castle looks out over the river Vltava, which is the perfect place for a picnic in the summer.

Summer is, of course, a more popular time to visit the Czech city, the warmer period being in May. However, hostels in Cesky Krumlov will be more expensive during this time, full of travellers looking to explore on a budget. It might be best to explore the sights in the winter, when there are less visitors. You are guaranteed snow through the winter months, which will make the castle even more stunning to see, and will make you feel incredibly festive. Any hostel in this city will be pretty and rustic, fitting into its surroundings seamlessly, and most hostels are based close by for ease.

If you do choose to stay in a hostel in Cesky Krumlov, you are sure to find that the city holds a certain romantic quality to it, which people come from all over to experience. Simple, wholesome food is up for grabs, as well as tours of the castle and its gardens.The town itself is historic, but it is also surrounded by woods, giving it a Bohemian, fairy-tale atmosphere at any time of day.
