    Castle & town Cesky Krumlov

    August 9, 2017 in Czech Republic

    In the morning we did a walking tour of the town and up to the castle. This is the 2nd biggest palace complex in Chez R after Prague Castle. The town and castle here are world heritage listed and wonderfully preserved with frescoes on many of the buildings. Town is on the winding Moldau River with hundreds of people canoeing down- only one way due to the Rapids.Read more

    Český Krumlov

    August 8, 2017 in Czech Republic

    Český Krumlov is definitely a must-see! It has kept its architectural heritage intact thanks to its non-involvement in wars over more than several centuries. With its cobbled streets and coloured fresco buildings at every turn my camera got a good workout.
    Krumlov translates to crooked meadow, named because of the way the River Vltava meanders around the town. There were at least 30 rafts going down the river at any one time from morning to early evening - there are two man-made rapids along the river which makes rafting a lot of fun. Restaurants and/or pubs dotted along the river creates a very relaxed holiday feel and there are plenty of us here!
    Its 13th Century castle has Gothic, Renaissance and baroque elements, an 11-hectare garden and an original 17th-century baroque theater.

    Český Krumlov

    August 9, 2017 in Czech Republic

    We joined a group for a free walking tour of the town this morning. It was a great way to learn more about the town's history and culture and to hear some of its legends. The tour guide walked through most of the town including the castle. The rest of the day was spent wandering around the town and down by the river enjoying a drink or two. The meal tonight was memorable - at a restaurant recommended to us (thanks Liz) - a medieval barbecue cellar. So popular you have to book and they have several sittings in one night. We got in at 9:00pm. Had the mixed grill of pork, beef and chicken served with potatoes, dips and potatoe pancake which was delicious.Read more

    Day 535: Re-Visiting Cesky Krumlov

    August 3 in Czech Republic

    Time to re-explore Cesky Krumlov, one of Czech Republic's prettiest villages! We had visited here before, back in 2014, but it was about -5 and snowing back then. Today it was closer to 35 and blazing sunshine - and packed with tourists of course.

    We decided to get a head start on both the tourists and the heat, so we headed out around 8am into the city. It was fairly nice and quiet, and we wandered around rekindling various memories and seeing stuff that we'd seen last time. We'd hoped to go inside the castle since it was closed in winter, but of course no dogs were allowed inside and it was a bit expensive anyway. So we decided to skip. At least this time we got to see the bear in the moat, last time he was hibernating!

    After a long morning of wandering we headed over to a brewery for lunch, which I think last time we weren't able to find (or it might've been closed). Had a couple of beers and a big lunch, then walked back through the old town and home. It's such a nice little town, though very tourist heavy these days - lots of groups following flags which I think tends to make things a bit worse. Oh well - can't really complain when I'm part of the problem.

    Back home where we relaxed and worked for the rest of the day, or as much as possible anyway when it was so bloody hot and we were completely fanless!

    Cesky Krumlov

    October 2, 2015 in Czech Republic

    There were no connections from Vienna to Cesky Krumlov through normal train and bus services that weren't long and round about. So after some heavy consideration of internet possibilities we decided on a a shuttle service. The service was a fairly reasonable price and also did a pick up and delivery at your actual address which meant no expensive taxi to get to a station of some sort. The shuttle bus (about an 8 seater at a push) arrived on time. We were picked up first, but the driver asked if we could sit up front. It was a bit of a squeeze, but not too bad. It turned out that we were picking up a gaggle of Japanese girls who did a pretty good job of filling up the back. It seemed like it was going to be a bit of a dull journey, but the driver was a fairly young guy with reasonable English and in the mood for a chat. Quite and interesting chat.,

    Our room in Cesky Krumlov attracted us partly because it was on the ground floor, which seemed quite a good idea as many of these old buildings have no lift. It was indeed on the ground floor, but what they didn't mention was that the reception and main door weren't on the ground floor they were on the street level. The more you travel the more you find that fools you.

    Cesky Krumlov is another old walled city dominated by a fortress - this time with Unesco Heritage listing. Our taxi driver had been complaining about the fact that Cesky Krumlov got all the publicity and tourists when there were other cities (like the one he was from that were just as beautiful, but no tourists to speak of. Our guide for a night time guided walk on the first night was adamant that it was the heritage listing that made the difference.

    Kurzer Ausflug an die Moldau

    August 8, 2017 in Czech Republic

    Der Wecker klingelt um 6 Uhr und wir starten den Tag mit einer kurzen Kaffeerunde. Dann ab auf den Bock und in die Werkstatt, in der uns Markus sein Nachbar einen Termin organisiert hat.

    Dort angekommen ist die Werkstatt wie zu erwarten voll und total ausgelastet. Es wird vom Meister eine kleine Probefahrt durchgeführt mit der erwarteten Diagnose, Antriebswelle oder im schlimmsten Fall der Defekt des Getriebes. Ein Getriebe können sie kurzfristig nicht instandsetzen und der Junjor-Chef wirkt nicht sonderlich motiviert uns zu helfen. Diese Werkstatt ist also nichts für uns, denken wir und wollen schon den Hof verlassen, als sich der Senior Chef hinters Telefon klemmt und anfängt zu telefonieren. Wir haben in kürzester Zeit in einer Werkstatt in Ohu einen Termin, man könne uns da helfen. Also los gehts, es ist kurz nach 8 Uhr und wir haben keine Zeit zu verlieren, wenn wir ohne größere Verzögerungen in den Urlaub starten wollen.

    Die Werkstatt in Ohu ist genauso vollgestellt, erstaunlicher Weise will man sich Zeit nehmen und uns helfen. Innerhalb von 30 Minuten sind vom Meister alle eventuell notwendigen Teile bestellt und wir kümmern uns um einen Ersatzwagen, denn wir auch in der nächsten Stunde über den ADAC bekommen. Diese Angagement muss belohnt werden und wir steuern das nächste Einkaufszentrum an, um noch notwendige Besorgungen zu machen und für die Werkstattmanschaft eine Kiste Bier und einen Kasten Limo zu besorgen.

    Nun können wir nichts mehr tun und nur noch abwarten, ob der versprochene Termin in 3 Tagen gehalten wird. Wir packen ein paar Sachen zusammen, um während des Werkstattaufenthalts eventuell in die Alpen fahren oder etwas Anderes unternehmen zu können.

    Nachdem ich Markus von einem Wochenendhaus am Lipno-Stausee erzählt habe, reift der Gedanke in den 3 Tagen an die Moldau zu fahren, um dass 10 jährige Paddeljubiläum des "Abflußkomandos" nachzuholen. Dass musste wegen des Europatrips ausfallen.

    Der Opel Astra Kombi wird mit den notwendigen Sachen beladen und schon rollen wir in Richtung Vyssi Brod, wo wir gegen 23 Uhr ankommen. Noch etwas Jubiläumsbier und ab in den Kombi, um zu schlafen. Es regnet wie aus Eimern, wir sind totmüde.
