For your information there is a bus leaving everyday from Prague to Cesky Krumlov at 15:25
I arrived in Cesky Krumlov around 19:00 and made my way to Hostel 99 (See review). Just wondering through this little town at nighttime I got the feeling that I was going to enjoy my time here. With its small narrow streets it reminded my of the Old town in Bergen, but with greater architecture. But by all means, Bergen is a lovely city and the scenic beauti is the reason why Ive lived there for 8years of my life.
At Hostel99 I checked in and to my BIG suprise there was a Norwegian working there, That's a first! He had been living in Cesky Krumlov for the last 7years and spoke perfectly Czech, as well as Norwegian. He took me out to places where you can take panoramas and showed me around for about one hour, before we decided to go to Gypsy's and sample some of the local food.
I got an early start and brought with me. I just walked around , taking inn sights as the Castle and the lovely old town. Strolled around the river and sampled a beer at some of the pubs Ive found on the way. According to Fred arriving in Winter wasnt such a bad idea , since the streets are flooded with tourists in summers. It was even worse than Prague according to the guys living there , in HUGE contrast to the almost empty streets and quiet athmosphere during winters.
I just walked around with my camera and shooting , while being a little frustrated that so many things where closed. I just walked around without a map and managed to end up in a school of arts. I was unaware of this at the time and snuck into the hallway and started to take pictures of some sculptures that where probably made by the students. At this time i was trespassing since the door was closed, but someone unlocked the door for me as they might have thought that i was a student. After taking my snaps , I exited and went around in the courtyard and looking around. An old woman aproached me and tried to comminicate in Czech, due to my non-existant Czech Skills we had a pretty hard time communicating. She then changed to german and from what i could understand , It was a school and not open to tourists..
Well back at the hostel again I met this Australian girl and we sat down in the Bedroom.
We went out, had some drinks and they wherent to interested in me and I wasnt interested in them , So they went on to the next bar while I stayed around. I sat down , got wasted, met some locals guys and just had fun. There are very few girls that are more fun to be around with than a real guy ;)
Still drunk from the night before, I headed to Ceske Budejovice.
