Our first stop in this tour will be at the royal castle on a promontory above the Vltava River. The current appearance of the chateau complex, including the park and the surrounding landscape, was inspired by the trips of Prince Jan Adolf II. Schwarzenberg to Great Britain, who as a representative of an important and wealthy family participated the coronation of Queen Victoria in 1838. As an honorary diplomat of the Habsburg monarchy, he traveled to the coronation with his wife, Princess Eleonora, who greatly influenced castle appearance. Hluboká soon became the seat of the Schwarzenberg family. The chateau itself was rebuilt in the Baroque style in the first third of the 18th century and maintained its appearance until the romantic reconstruction in the mid-19th century. The inspiration for the reconstruction of the chateau was mainly the royal castle Windsdor. Next we will reach Cesky Krumlov, the first UNESCO listed town in Czech Republic. Cesky Krumlov, the "Pearl of Bohemia" has its origins way back in the medieval times. Since the creation of the Golden Path and the Linz Path, the town gained importance in commercre. The Castle complex, the castle Baroque Theater, the Revolving auditorium, and the several hundred restored buildings in Český Krumlov are already a destination for over a million tourists every year. During the visit we will see the St Vitus Church, the formal Jesuit College and garden, the renaissance town hall and the Plague column on the main square, the Barbers brigde. In the Castle area we visit the five courtyards of the Castle and  the Panorama Terrace.
