Just imagine it. You are lying on a sunny beach, lush grapevines are ripening behind you, children are playing in the water or playing happily on the shore… You must be vacationing somewhere in Italy or Spain, right? Wrong! You are still in historic Český Krumlov and enjoying the aquatic fun right in the city centre.

It can be said that you will have unique experiences in Krumlov. In two places in the city centre, you have the opportunity to swim in the river this summer.

If you like peace and sunshine, use the landscaped entrance to the river and lie on a large grassy area under the picturesque terraces of the garden house – the studio of Egon Schiele. You can soak up the sun's rays here from early morning, just as they are soaked up by the grape vines from the adjacent Krumlov vineyard, which were returned to the area a few years ago by Krumlov winemakers. In addition, you have the opportunity to entertain your children on the adjacent children's playground or soak up the atmosphere of a unique place where the muses of artists still live.

A new pier and entrance to the water can now also be found on the banks of the Vltava River on the border of the City Park and the P3 parking in place of the former Český Krumlov swimming bath. You can enjoy aquatic fun right in the city centre. In addition, the newly built community place in the city park offers the opportunity to entertain children on the adjacent playground, rent various sporting equipment from badminton to petanque and roller skates. You can sit here in peace, have a coffee or soda and just chat with the locals or rent a paddle board at a nearby sporting equipment rental shop and try your hand at sailing right below the castle walls.

Another new sandy entrance to the Vltava River was built in Nové Spolí, a neigbourgood which is located south of the city center .

As you can see, Čeký Krumlov is perfect for wonderfully unique experiences, so don't forget to pack a swimsuit with you for a holiday in Krumlov!
