Tri Krumlovske Klice

According to
legend, the name Krumlov is derived from the German "Krumme Aue",
which may be translated as "crooked meadow". The name comes from
the natural topography of the town, specifically from the tightly
crooked meander of the Vltava river. The word "Ceský" simply means
Czech, or Bohemian (actually one and the same), as opposed to
Moravian or Silesian. In Latin documents it was called Crumlovia or
Crumlovium. The town was first mentioned in documents from 1253,
where Krumlov was called Chrumbonowe.

This charming town experienced its greatest prosperity during the
rule of Lords of Rožmberk (1302 - 1602), who chose Ceský
Krumlov to become the seat of their kingdom. At this time, Krumlov
lay on the crossroads between the Czech, Austrian, Bavarian and
Northern Italian lands. You can see the influence of these
different cultures that have left their mark on the town and Castle
with brushstrokes of the Italian Renaissance. At the end of 17th
century, during the reign of House of Eggenberg, the Castle Baroque
Theatre was built and the Castle Gardens were renovated. Under the
rule of House of Schwarzenberg, Ceský Krumlov gained its Baroque
appearance. Ceský Krumlov's Old Town hasn't experienced major
changes since the 19th century, other than the demolition of the
town's fortification walls and guard towers, and has maintained its
historic character.

Ceský Krumlov, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a lively,
cosmopolitan town with a unique atmosphere surrounded by unspoiled
countryside. Dominated by a Castle stretching over the meandering
Vltava River, Ceský Krumlov's narrow cobblestone streets wind along
romantic nooks between patrician houses where you'll find
attractive exhibits of world- renown artists, music festivals and
concerts, and theatre performances. The cosy inns, coffee shops,
and ancient taverns entertain a diverse international crowd.

Jmeno mesta Krumlov je odvozovano z nemeckeho vyrazu "Krumme Aue",

latinskych listinach je nazyvano Crumlovia ci Crumlovium. Prvni

oznacovan coby Chrumbenowe.

Doba rozkvetu tohoto malebneho mesta je spojena s vladou panu z
Rozmberka (1302 - 1602), kteri z Ceskeho Krumlova ucinili sve
