The ancient city of Cesky Krumlov (UNESCO World Heritage), with its architectural standard, cultural tradition, and expanse, ranks among the most important historic sights in the central European region.

Building development from the 14th to 19th centuries is well-preserved in the original groundplan layout, material structure, interior installation and architectural detail. Situated on the banks of the Vltava river, the town was built around a 13th-century castle with Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque elements. 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.
