Soooo… apparently May is the month when I go to a lot of palaces. While this last photo of the month is not technically OF a palace, it was taken from the gardens of the castle in Český Krumlov. Go figure.
Quite often, you’ll find Český Krumlov on those ever-popular lists with titles like “20 Villages Off the Beaten Path You MUST SEE in Europe,” but I think it’s safe to say that the secret has been out for a while now. Don’t mistake me, Český Krumlov is lovely and well worth a visit, but considering it has a history dating back to the 15th century, it’s not a recent discovery. Just make sure to watch out for bears.
