Český Krumlov, CZECH REPUBLIC – May 21, 2016 Day Stop — We headed to the Copenhagen Airport to again board our private jet heading to our day stop in the Czech Republic while enjoying sumptuous brunch service on board. It’s a great benefit to travel by private jet and add a mid-day stop along the way to our next destination. Český Krumlov was our first stop for the day.
After landing in České Budejovicě which is located in the center of a valley of the Vltava River, at the confluence with the Malse. We were met by our coach and taken to the nearby medieval town of Český Krumlov considered to be a pearl of Renaissance architecture and where the splendor of the castle, alleyways and beautiful floral gardens are harmoniously intertwined. The Old Town here has remained mostly untouched since the 19th century and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with 300 protected medieval buildings. It is an outstanding example of a small central European medieval town whose architectural heritage has remained intact thanks to its peaceful evolution over more than five centuries. We found the town quite charming as we visited the Český Krumlov State Castle with its well-preserved Baroque Theater and walked through the narrow lanes. At lunch we enjoyed chamber music provided by a flute and guitar duo in a private room at Restaurant Le Jardin on one of the cobblestone streets in the Old Town. After lunch we continued to explore the well-preserved lanes and architecture before returning to the airport to re-board our jet and continue on to Slovenia for our 3-night stay.
