The first view
The beautiful Vltava (pronounced Vultava) and such.
Today we went on a day trip from Prague to Cesky Krumlov, a city that has not changed much since the Renaissance. You enter the town through, or under rather, the castle gate and immediatly in front of you is a small medieval town. The Vltava, the same river that runs through Prague, also passes through Cesky Krumlov, only its much smaller and calmer. There are a ton of little cafes and restuarants, the whole town is really enchanting. The buildings are all pretty much original and it made it much easier to picture exactly what the Renaissance town would look like, but still difficult to picture the people bustling about the town. I tried to imagine the stereotypical "barmaid wench" fetching water from the well and the peddlers in the main square trying to hawk me spices from "far away lands..." but my imagination could only go so far. There were a couple of people dressed for the part to lure the tourists into their shops, though the town was pretty empty otherwise. It would probably be a perfect summer getaway town but the weather today was pretty dreary. All in all, definitly a recommended place to visit in the
P.S. After glancing through my pictures from Cesky Krumlov, I realized it reminds me of the "provincial little town" from Beauty and the Beast.
