Ceske Krumlov & Ceske Budejovice Pictures

The small city of Ceske Krumlov is one of the highlights of a trip to Bohemia. A magnificent castle in extraodinary condition sits atop the hill. A small canal runs between the red tile roof homes. This place is straight out of a fairy tale and is a perfect example of a wealthy medieval city, complete with cobblestone streets.

Praha as its known in Czech is a well preserved European capital city. See pictures of Prague Castle on the hill, and Charles Bridge which connects the castle on the hill to the old town or Stare Mesto neighborhood. Inside the castle is Saint Vitus Cathedral which provides a picturesque vantage point to view the city below.

The focus of this Bohemian town is the large gothic and renaissance castle. The castle reflects on peaceful Lake Vajgar. Like other towns in Southern Czech Republic, colorful medieval buildings and the traditional cobblestone town square are well preserved.

Trebon, South Bohemia Pictures

Trebon is ancient walled village complete with a moat and gates. Colorful historic buildings and cobblestone streets make you feel like you've entered a time warp back to the medieval period. See sgrafitto (scratched and painted) building facades of flat walls made to look like large blocks of stone.

Landstejn Castle Pictures, Czech Republic

Slavonice is a sleepy rural town near the borther with Austria. It's here we started our trek on the Greenways Trail that connects Prague to Vienna. The next major landmark is Landstejn Castle, a large gothic fortification that's relatively well preserved. Still on foot, we reach another small town of Nova Bystrice.
