Our short summer-trip led us finally to old cities of Bohemia on our way back home. So we have stayed finally at Budweis and Cesky Krumlov for a night and a day, enough time for collecting some interesting and nice street-impressions while loafing through these towns.

Egon Schiele, Stadtende (Häuserbogen III), 1913
Hardly any other place inspired Egon Schiele as much as Cesky Krumlov, one of the most beautiful Renaissance cities in Europe and an architectural jewel of first order. Despite the really too many tourists today, you still find very quiet and inspiring places in the city or optionally just make a surprising rafting tour on Vitava river around the beautiful and impressive city.
Vitava River is usually a calm place for rafting, but there are also some rapids around Cesky Krumlov which require a little bit of care in order to avoid an unintended bath in the cool waters
