Hello there. Cesky Krumlov.

Day 4

Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic

We left early in the morning from Prague and headed to Cesky Krumlov. On our way there, we stopped at my favorite castle during the trip. The Hluboka Castle. Its everything you would imagine a castle to be. Before we walked up a terribly steep hill to get there, we stopped and ate a traditional Czech lunch and ate some more gellati (notcing a trend?)

We arrived at Cesky Krumlov in the after noon. and checked into our little hotel. The town is very small and seems to be completly fueled by the tourists drawn to their little castle. This castle paled in comparisson to the one we saw earlier that day but it was quaint and charming. The biggest attraction at Cesky Krumlov Castle was that they removed the water out of the mote and replaced it with bears thinking it would keep people away more. We ate dinner at a nice little restaurant on a terrace overlooking the river and then conked out for the night.

Very traditional Czech food. Chicken, dumplings and sauerkraut.

On our drive to Cesky Krumlov there were tons of fields of mustard. The yellow was strikingly gorgeous against the green fields and bright blue sky.

(No I am not preggers. Its just a really bad angle after setting up the timer and then running and jumping onto the wall!)

These were in the town square. We couldn't resist.

Clearly their funding wasn't as high as Hluboka. If you look up close you'll see that all of the "brick work" is actually painted on.

The bears that live in the moat. Vicious right? haha

I don't know why these were there. They were so random and out of place. I couldn't read the sign that explained them but here they are, fingers.

More "turtlenecks"!

Beautiful little town

Translation please?

Good bye Czech Republic!
