A carnival festival will descend upon Český Krumlov between Saturday 25 and Tuesday 28 February 2017. For the entire four days inhabitants and visitors can enjoy a wonderful spectacle of the coloured masque procession, travelling jugglers and musicians, good food and drinks but also traditional carnival entertainment.

This year we will mark exactly 10 years since the first procession in Český Krumlov was held. On that occasion you can visit an exhibition of photographs and artefacts from the last 10th year of "carnival procession". This exhibition will be located in the school gallery in the Monasteries of Český Krumlov during February.

According to legend, the name Krumlov is derived from the German "Krumme Aue", which may be translated as "crooked meadow". The name comes from the natural topography of the town, specifically from the tightly crooked meander of the Vltava river. The word "Český" simply means Czech, or Bohemian (actually one and the same), as opposed to Moravian or Silesian. In Latin documents it was called Crumlovia or Crumlovium. The town was first mentioned in documents from 1253, where Krumlov was called Chrumbonowe.

The town name was first mentioned in a letter of Duke Otokar Štýrský in 1253. The town was established essentially in two stages. The first part was built spontaneously below the Krumlov castle, called Latrán and settled mostly by people who had some administrative connection with the castle. The name and foundation of this part of town is shrouded in legend as well - the castle and town were allegedly built in a place where the Vítkovci overcame a nest of bandits that had been kidnapping and thieving. To the memory of the villain´s hiding place it was called Latrán (Tales and Legends of Český Krumlov). The reality is, however, more prosaic - latus in latin means lateral, side part and residences below the castle were given this name.

Since the mid 1960\'s, special care has been devoted to the preservation of the historical merits of Český Krumlov; the town was included in 1992 onto UNESCO\'s List of World Cultural and Natural Heritage.

Rented a car in Prague from Runwell for our vacation. This was after seeing terrible reviews for another well known brand we had reserved a car rental through. Cancelled that reservation and went with Runwell. What a breath of fresh air... They are customer friendly and amazingly easy to work with. Pick up was straight forward. The car was what we expected, it ran great, no issues. Drop off of ...
Fue la única rentadora que nos dio toda la documentación necesaria para poder hacer una recorrida por los países de la zona. Además de República Checa, fuimos a Rumanía, Hungría, Eslovenia, Eslovaquia, Austria y Alemania sin ningún problema todo en orden. En casi todos los países de la lista los peajes ya venían cubiertos por la rentadora y en los que ellos nos avisaron ,sólo hay que ir...
Super easy car rental. Absolutely no hidden fees, unlike most car hire companies. And a really friendly team. Would definitely recommend!
