Ceský Krumlov, situated on the Vltava River, is the southernmost major city in Bohemia and in the Czech Republic. The biggest landmark and tourist attraction is Ceský Krumlov Castle, dating from 1240, which overlooks the town and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A 27-acre Baroque garden is located on the site, as is a Baroque theatre, the latter being one of the best-preserved theatres built in this architectural style in the world. One entrance into the castle complex, interestingly enough, is on the Cloak Bridge, built in the style of a Roman aqueduct. The town is known as a budding foodie destination, and also serves as a great jumping-off point for those wanting to explore the Bohemian Forest National Park, the largest national park in the country.
