Cesky Krumlov is ridiculously dripping in awesomeness.
His Royal Orangeness Karl Willem, PA/PR Gromit, and loyal human consort The Nashman were a bit let down by the train station and the generic new part of town but as we stood on top of the hill before the final descent down to the city's Budejovice gate we were left speechless. After 13 days of backpacking we have finally reached our main destination. And what an amazing first impression. The old centre lived up to our expectations. I mean, HRO Karl Willem and PA/PR Gromit, having lived all their lives in old historic picturesque towns, are not that easily impressed but someone better come pick our jaws from the ground because as early as now, we were making plans to revisit the city during a different season.
A perfectly preserved medieval city!
...but the first order of the day is to have lunch...and food is not difficult to find here...
...we had fish....
...with the regional beer..
...before hopping to a cafe to get some turkish coffee...
..and another stein of the regional brew, this time Pilsner, the grand daddy of all pilsens in the world.
...and then it's time for His Royal Orangeness Karl Willem, PA/PR Gromit, and loyal human consort The Nashman to have a walkabout and make love to the city.
