Discover Cesky Krumlov

First of all I would like to wish all of you all the best for 2019 and may this be the year you discover EuroVelo! As for myself, this year I would like to explore more of EuroVelo 7 north of Berlin and be more active here sharing with you all my discoveries, also I wish a great year for Steemit which I'm sure will eventually become the best platform for blogging in the Universe.

So, if you choose to discover Czech Republic by bike, EuroVelo7 will eventually take you to the medieval town of Cesky Krumlov.

I only had one morning to explore this beautiful town and I think I've used it well. I've started the day by having a great cup of coffee at Egon Cafe followed by an excellent breakfast, then continued with a visit to the museum next door before going for a walk to the castle and finishing by having a tour of the castle's garden.

The czechs love their ommelette, me too!

I found out about this cafe when I checked in at pension Lantern, the hosts offered breakfast here for their guests and if I remember well the coffee was free, now that's true czech hospitality, I still remember that morning to this day.

Finished the breakfast and went straight next door to visit the Egon Schiele Art Centrum. There is a permanent exhibition documenting the life and work of Egon Schiele who was an Austrian painter considered to be an early exponent of Expressionism and a major figurative painter of the early 20th century. Also there are other rotating exhibits of both classical 20th century and contemporary art. Let's have a look inside!

I personally liked a lot Egon Schiele Art Centrum, I definitely recommend to go there for a visit if you plan a trip to Cesky Krumlov in the future. The entrance cost for an adult is around 7 EUR and combined with a good coffee next door makes up for a nice break outside of the castle. Speaking about the castle, it's our next stop!

As you can see there are a lot of tourists in the summer and I decided to just visit the exterior of the castle due to personal time constraints, but for you I would recommend to take the time and plan accordingly to also see the interior.

For a sneak peek at the castle interior you should definitely check @delishtreats post here. She recently visited Cesky Krumlov and she made a very nice post about the town and the castle. She is a very talented story teller and photographer, I discovered many beautiful places with her here on Steemit and I am a big fan of her work, you'll understand why after you check her profile.

After exiting the castle I continued walking to the gardens and on the way I found a nice spot on the walls, high above the Vltava and took some photos of the old town and the surroundings.

Living Cesky Krumlov

It was a short stay for me in Cesky Krumlov, but one to remember and worth sharing with you. Later this afternoon will continue touring on the EuroVelo 7 route all the way to Ceske Budejovice and beyond, more coming in the next post.


I would like to donate the SBDs from this post earnings to @pushpedal who are cycling from China all the way to Portugal and recently had a major setback (money stolen and visa expiration) and need some help, more details in their post here. Good luck guys!

Greetings @discovereurovelo,

Happy New Year!

Looks like you are making up for lost time with this splendid post.

Lovely wrting and photography.

Looking forward to having a look at your links.

All the best.

Cheers!

Yes, took me a while to get started again, need to keep this train moving forward. It's easier for me to cycle than to write but may be that's exactly what I need to improve :) Thank you!

Well, well, well.. now I have to go there again to visit the Egon Schiele Art Centrum :D You had such a lovely weather Dan! When we were there it was all cloudy and kind of drizzling all the time. And it was super cold! Not that surprising when you go there at the end of November I guess :)

Thank you SO much for promoting my account! Now you deserved a free meal ;)

You are very kind Martina, but I think I need to work more for that free meal :)

Amazing photos! I am glad you enjoyed your time in Cesky Krumlov, it is one of the most beautiful towns of my Czech homeland :)
