Český Krumlov, located on a horseshoe bends in the Vltava River near the border of Austria. Cesky Krumlov is known to be the most beautiful historical towns of Europe. A day in this town is an induction in European history, architecture, and art.
What to see?
Towering over the town is the Krumlov Castle. Construction on the castle began 700 years ago. It started as a small tower where the lord of the region controlled the river and surrounding area. As the centuries passed, it was made bigger and bigger, and more buildings and beautiful courtyards were added. Today, Krumlov Castle is one of the most popular places to visit in the Czech Republic.
One of the famous places here is known as Graphite mine. People have been excavating the Czech Republic for nearly around 4000 years. They have collected silver, gold, minerals, and precious gems. One of the things also mined here is graphite. Graphite is the stuff you find in pencils. Most people call it lead, but it’s graphite. It’s also used in electric motors and some types of batteries. The graphite inside this mine was once at the bottom of the sea and is made up of dead fish and plants that died 300 million years ago. At present, the Český Krumlov graphite mine is only used to impart people how mining works. They don’t remove graphite from it anymore.
