Cesky Krumlov Christmas Market

Cesky Krumlov is a beautiful Bohemian town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1992, whose foundation dates back to the early 14th century. Located along the Vltava River, on a meander of which the historic center rises, Cesky Krumlov was the seat of the Duchy of Krumlov. Among the attractions of this wonderful town is the majestic castle, second in size in the Czech Republic only to the Royal Castle of Prague, the castle also preserves a graceful 17th century theater. The historic center is very charming with medieval buildings and other successive styles, to visit the church of San Vito (Kostel Sv. Víta) with, inside, interesting frescoes. The city is close to the Bohemian Forest National Park (Národní park Šumava) where you can admire peat bogs, alpine meadows, centuries-old forests, lakes and rivers. Just ten kilometers from Cesky Krumlov is one of the oldest monasteries in Bohemia, the Zlatá Koruna monastery. While about 30 km away is the Hluboka castle, dating back to the 12th century. The Cesky Krumlov Christmas market takes place in the wonderful scenery of this historic town in the Czech Republic. During the Christmas period, in addition to the Cesky Krumlov Christmas market, the city also hosts advent concerts and some events dedicated to children, such as the post office of the Child Jesus.
