Review of the festival of the Five-petal rose (Czech Republic, Cesky Krumlov)

 

To write this review made me wonderful memories of our trip to Czech Republic in June 2012. Next month in an old Czech town again will take place the traditional festival of the Five-petal rose. I want to be there. But we came to this festival by accident. Regular excursion programs offer to visit the city and to visit the castle Deep. But this time the tour coincided with the festival. Surprisingly, many tourists from our group refused to go, say what’s there to see. How did they regret later.

The Czech Krumlov is a small historic town in southern Bohemia. From Prague we drove almost 2 hours. The city has retained its old appearance and is currently under the protection of UNESCO.

With most dressed in medieval costumes.

The festival in the city these days let free men in suits, the rest Continue reading
