Krumlov House

Cesky Krumov House HostelTwo years ago Karin also did a photo-journalism report on the hostel in which we stayed.  We recommend it highly because we had a spacious, comfortable and interesting room and the owner and staff were very helpful and friendly.  What more can you want!

Hostel Krumlov House was voted Best Atmosphere in Europe by Hostelbookers customers in 2010 and won this year’s 2012 HOSCARS (Hostel Oscars) for the Czech Republic!

They have an excellent web site and Facebook fan page

Cesky Krumlov: You gotta go there!

I recently discovered that a report of our visit to Cesky Krumlov never made it to this blog.  So two years after the fact here it is.  This World Heritage Site is probably the Czech Republic’s second best known city and well deserving of its reputation as a “must see” place.  You can reach it by train but we chose the Student Agency bus as more convenient.

I have selected a few photos to show here but as they are winter time shots they do not do justice to the charm of this well preserved town.  I urge you read Karin’s captions in our five–yes five albums for our three day visit–photo albums to catch the atmosphere of this place that will in turn catch you.  Literally everyone falls in love with Cesky Krumlov!

My favourite quote from Karin is “Cesky Krumlov brings to life the fairy tales of our youth.”
