Testimonials

Prague and Cesky Krumlov Private Tour”

In early September we visited Prague with Kamil as our guide for two half days. He also drove the four of us to Cesky Krumlov on another day and back to Prague in the evening. Kamil was an excellent guide. He is very knowledgeable and answered our many questions, is very organized and gave us recommendations of a number of different topics. We also enjoyed our drive and visit to Cesky Krumlov. Kamil’s comments about the surrounding countryside gave us a broader experience of the Czech Republic. We felt like we were traveling and sharing with a new friend. I would highly recommend Kamil Vondrous to anyone visiting Prague!

History of Cesky Krumlov

1253 is the first written mention of Cesky Krumlov when castle and town were seat of the Vitek dynasty. After Vitek dynasty died out in 1302, their property was passed on to relatives, the lords of Rosenberg, who made Krumlov their residence for the next 300 hundred years. The Rosenberg family were among the most powerful aristocratic families in Bohemia. Their power, wealth and personal interest in Cesky Krumlov turned the town into an economical and cultural domain in South Bohemia . The Rosenbergs coat of arms, a five petalled rose, is a symbol of Cesky Krumlov even today.

In early 17th century the domain and the castle was sold to the Emperor and king of Bohemia Rudolf II of the Habsburg dynasty. Shortly thereafter, the castle and town were passed to the Eggenbergs family for their rendered services. The Eggenbergs presided until selling to the Schwarzenberg family. Ultimately, in 1947 the castle and other Schwarzenberg property were transferred to state ownership.

1992 is very important to Cesky Krumlov recent history – the year it was listed as a UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage sight. As a result the town has become a well-known tourist center as well as location of a number of important cultural events.
