Where I stayed
As for me, Prague had been one of the most interesting cities in Europe, but I might have expected too much. Compared to Paris, I didn't need to take much time to finish sightseeing on the next day. However, the atomosphere of the city was good. The Charles Bridge and Old Town Square were the best attractions for me
In the first plan, I decided to spend two days in Prague, but I changed my mind. I was curious about another attractive city, Cesky Krumlov. The city was on the world heritage site of UNESCO and highly rated in Rich Steven's Best of Eastern Europe guide. Actually, I had two travel guides:one was LP guide and the other was Rich's. In comparison, LP guide was comprehensive, and it was useful in searching for general information. On the other hand, Rich was honest and he wrote about only major attracions where tourists would usually visit. Anyway, I took a bus to Cesky Krumlov on the second day in Prague.
I thought I bought a bus ticket to Cesky Krumlov, but it wasn't. The bus terminal was in Cesky Budejovice. I was worried about the bus connection to Krumlov, but I was able to find the bus without any problems. The Budejovice terminal was shopping mall. I bought ice cream and waited for the bus for 20mins.
Frankly speaking, Krumlov is the most beautiful city I have ever visited in Europe and it looked like a real fairy-tale city. I can recommend the city to any romantic young girls. There were also a lot of Japanese and Korean tourists. I have them taken some pictures of me. The TI office was very helpful as my guidebook said, although they didn't accept credit cards
Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic, Bohemia's Time-Warp Town
The video introduces the rafting experience and castle tour I missed out on. I just strolled around the town, but it was fully enjoyable.
