Český Krumlov Castle (guided tour in English)

Český Krumlov (English: Bohemian Crumlaw) is a small city in the South Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic where Český Krumlov Castle is located. Old Český Krumlov is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Construction of the town and castle began in the late 13th century at a ford in the Vltava River, which was important in trade routes in Bohemia. Emperor Rudolf II bought Krumlov in 1602. Emperor Ferdinand II gave Krumlov to the House of Eggenberg. From 1719 until 1945 the castle belonged to the House of Schwarzenberg. Most of the architecture of the old town and castle dates from the 14th through 17th centuries; the town's structures are mostly in Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque styles. The castle itself consists of many defined parts dating from different periods of time.

Český Krumlov Castle is the second largest castle after the Hradčany castle complex of Prague within the Czech Republic. Inside the Český Krumlov Castle grounds is a large Rococo garden that was not adequately maintained during the second half of the 20th century. This site was included in the 1996 World Monuments Watch by the World Monuments Fund. With financial support from American Express the garden's central fountain was documented and reconstructed, and is functional today.
