I am happy to give advice or even accompany you on these trips as a guide. If you are planning active vacation, take a minute to check out the possible excursions as well. Your kids will also enjoy them.

Only 35 kms from Český Krumlov is the most visited monument of the Czech Republic, the latter residence of the Schwarzenberg family. A real tudor-style castle in the heart of Europe.

The visit of the famous sight near České Budejovice is "a must". This is the most visited monument in the Czech republic, the representational rooms, private apartments, the tower, the kitchens and the park can also be visited.

České Budějovice
The city which was founded in 1265 to countervail Krumlov and the Rožmberk family has today more than 93 thousand inhabitants. Hussites, Prussians and the Habsburgs have among others occuppied it during its eventful history.

Contrary to Cesky Krumlov, České Budějovice is plain, so the structure of this city is conform to the usual middle-age colonisation type, all the sights are within walking distance around the huge main square.

Budvar Brewery
After the founding of the city, the privilege of the brewing went in the hands of the town brewery and the quality of its beer was even praised by the Emperor  Ferdinand Ist.
