What you will see
A must see of the museum is the detailed ceramic model of Český Krumlov's old town, one of the largest models of this kind in the world. It covers an area of 26 hectares of the urban preservation area, about 800 structures, meanders of the Vltava and the fortification, walls and gates which no longer extist.
The ceramic model on a 1:200 scale was build in 1977-1984 and first introduced to the public in early 1985. It shows the historic core of Český Krumlov in its ideal condition from around 1800.
Part of the Regional Museum is the Memorial Birth House of the writer Adalbert Stifter in Horní Planá, mapping the life and works of this “poet of Šumava”.
