First part of the trip leads through enjoyable Soth Bohemian landscape to  the lakes area around a picturesque village of Trebon takes about 45 minutes. This part of South Bohemia is an idyllic park in which meadows and solitary oaks are mixed with deep woods, fields and sweeping lakes. The region began to flourish around the fortified towns of Trebon in the 13th century. Trebon reached its peak as centers of culture and commerce in the 16th century under the wealthy Rozmberk family. This unique old times picturesque little town is nowadays spa town and the center of Bohemian fishfarming industry.  Local beer has been produced in Trebon since 14th century, nowadays brand is called Regent. The exceptionally preserved historical core of the old town square, Trebon castle and former Augustinian Monastery, with its position on the banks of the Svět fishpond is a true South Bohemian jewel. Just before lunch time, we leave Trebon for Hluboka. Our journey continues through striking South Bohemian countryside and villages to reach the gem of the Czech castles, Hluboka castle - a piece of Windsor England in the middle of South Bohemia, which got its present appearance in the 19th century after a Neo-Gothic reconstruction. Hluboka Castle was originally founded as a guardian castle in the middle of the 13th century by Bohemian kings. The castle owes its current appearance to the Schwarzenberg family and is often described as the most beautiful Czech castle. Let's join one of group tours to the Hluboka castle representation rooms. The walls and ceilings of the interiors are richly decorated with wood carvings and covered in fine wood.  Some rooms are decorated with paintings by 16th to 18th century European masters, chandeliers, stained glass windows and Delft pottery. The tour takes about 1 hour and it is the only way for visitors to get to see the castle interiors. Let's take lunch at České Budějovice, home town of the Budweiser beer. It is on our way to Holasovice.  Your guide takes you to local Czech Budweiser pub for traditional Czech lunch in the old town of České Budějovice. Our day ends with a stroll through Holasovice village, a UNESCO protected site, which is about 45 minute drive from Hluboka castle. This village keeps its local character since 19th century and it is a unique example of very local South Bohemian architecture.   Looking for something else? Send us a request here.

Cesky Krumlov  SCENIC Hike
Cesky Krumlov SCENIC Hike
Duration 2 to 2.5 hours. Price for 2 people CZK 1800. Additional person surcharge CZK 100
If you wish to go beyond the experiences of an usual visitor to Český Krumlov, take this hiking tour. The best is to stay overnight and take this tour early morning before the crowds hit the city. I promise we meet lots of locals doing the same exercise as a daily routine.
Meet your guide at the place of your stay in Cesky Krumlov. Take a walk around the Old Town viewpoints and head to Krizovy Vrch hill.  First climb takes us through picturesque castle courtyards to reach the connecting bridge between the palace and the Baroque theatre area. Here we enjoy the stunning views of the old town and the Vltava river meandering through relatively flat area down the old town. We continue up to the castle gardens with a stop at view terrace just at the top gate to the castle. The journey continues down to the village of Plesivec along the old former fortifications. Here you can immerse yourself into quite part of Český Krumlov  where local people live. We cut through the outskirts of the old town park side along the Vltava river with stunning views of the former Fisherman street and with St. Vat church, House of Prelate and former Jesuit School just over the river. Over the street we turn up to former synagogue and climb down the river around Egon Schiele's summer house to cross the Vltava river and start climbing up to Krizovy arch while enjoying quiet neighborhood of Horni  Brana district. After some 20 minute steep hike up to "Krizak" as locals call the hill with 18th century chapel we can enjoy breathtaking view of the Český Krumlov  castle, old town and the surroundings of Blansky les highlands.  We are only 20 minutes from the Český Krumlov  old town square yet feeling as being in the middle of nowhere surrounded by meadows and forest few steps away. On the way back to the old town, we follow Jesus Christ stations of the cross monuments to finally reach the highlight of Český Krumlov  view points - the former Jesuit Seminary garden. Our hike ends at Svornosti Square, right in the heart of the old town.
