Český Krumlov is located in the south of the Czech Republic, on the meandering Vltava river, which surrounds the town with a blue band. The settlement was established in the 13th century around the castle built on a high escarpment, which was meant to protect the crossing through the river. The perfectly preserved castle still towers over the town and is its main tourist attraction. Visitors may not only see the castle chambers and climb the tower, from which they can admire the beautiful panorama of the town, but also visit the Baroque castle theatre, in which a rich exposition of theatrical props and costumes can be seen. What is more, in the museum there is a magnificent golden carriage, made of gilded wood. It is the most valuable exhibit in the castle.
