Day 1: The first destination will be the charming South Bohemian town of Hluboká nad Vltavou, where is located picturesque Hluboká Castle, situated in a huge stunning park and with richly decorated interiors, it will be one of the highlights of the trip. Originally an ancient gothic castle from the 13th century, after several reconstructions turned into a unique Neo-Gothic chateau, one of the most photogenic in Europe.
After the castle excursion, there will be short, half an hour transfer to Český Krumlov.
Český Krumlov, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a lively, cosmopolitan town with a unique atmosphere surrounded by unspoiled countryside. Dominated by a second biggest Czech castle stretching over the meandering River Vltava, Český Krumlov’s narrow cobbled streets wind along with romantic nooks between patrician houses where you’ll find attractive exhibits of world-renowned artists, music festivals and concerts, and theatre performances. The cosy inns, coffee shops, and ancient taverns entertain a diverse international crowd. You can admire more than 300 historical buildings, and, together with an English-speaking guide, visit the castle, with its amazing Baroque theatre, and the castle moat with bears living there.
After lunch, visit an Egon Schiele art museum or excursion of interiors of the castle or discovering the town centre by walking through it by yourself.
Light dinner and accommodation in a cosy local charming hotel. After dinner, an individual stroll through the magical evening city, a visit to the castle gardens, etc.
Day 2: After the breakfast, transfer about two and half hours to a picture-perfect Austrian UNESCO town Salzburg
The name Salzburg means “salt fortress.” For thousands of years, salt has been mined from the area around Salzburg. This “white gold” made Salzburg a powerful trading city. The city is famous for its baroque architecture that can be seen throughout the old town. Salzburg survived World War II with very little damage, so most of these old, Baroque buildings remain in their original condition. In 1997, the city of Salzburg became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Nestled in the foothills of the Alps, Salzburg is a compact city that is easy to explore in just one day. It’s the perfect blend of history and culture, being home to Mozart, an ancient fortress, and several Sound of Music sites. With one day in Salzburg, explore the old town, enjoy the view from Hohensalzburg, and visit Mozart’s birthplace.
We will make plenty of perfect photos, visit the famous Hohensalzburg fortress, Salzburg Cathedral, and after lunch in the famous renown local restaurant, we will visit Mozart´s birthplace and Museum. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born and raised in Salzburg. For almost 30 years, the Mozart family lived on the third floor of 9 Getreidegasse Street in the heart of Salzburg. This building is now a museum. See where Mozart was born and raised, the violin he played as a child, and the clavichord he used while composing The Magic Flute.
Dominating the city of Salzburg is the Hohensalzburg Fortress. Built in 1077, it was one of Europe’s largest castles at the time. This is Salzburg’s main tourist attraction.
Altstadt is the old town of Salzburg. It’s compact, easy to walk, and filled with things to do. Here are the best things to do in the old town of Salzburg. One of the main places in the old town is Salzburg Cathedral – was first built in 774 and then it was completely rebuilt several times. Mozart was baptized here in 1756. This cathedral sits smack in the center of town so it’s impossible to miss.
