State Castle and Chateau Český Krumlov

manjuris
Being history junkies that we are, we made our way straight to the castle that dates back to the 13th century and served as the seat of the powerful Rosenburg family. The moats in castles such as this usually have crocodiles, instead this one had cuddly bears. We took a tour of the interiors, our guide was a young Czech fellow with surprisingly impeccable English. He adeptly handled most of the queries the group had. Unfortunately photography is not allowed, so you will have to see it for yourself. One and half hour replete with stories and legends, trade history with China, yes most of the things we re” Made in China ” then as well!! also heard an interesting story about the ghost of the lady in white that still appears time and again. Interesting, how people and dynasties move on and cease to exist, but their lives linger on in the everyday things such as chairs, glasses, bed, linen etc. Well then it was time to make our arduous journey up the stair to the tower.
