Well, that is about as close as I could get to pronouncing, and remembering, the name of quite the most enchanting place in Czech-land - Český Krumlov - the town we moved to after the family visit. It is due south of Prague, almost exactly 3 hours by coach, the favourite means of travel in the Czech Republic. The River Vltava has produced a loop, almost cutting back into itself, and in that loop is the ancient town, whilst on the other bank, cobbled streets lead up to an enormous 'castle' which dominates town and river. The 'castle' has been 'modernised' over recent centuries and is now more of a rambling stately home which contains - joy of joys for me - one of only two existing and working Baroque theatres - you can read more at this link. The theatre has an enormous number of different sets which can be changed in under 12 seconds by means of hugely complicated wooden and rope mechanisms under the stage.
If I describe the town as 'picture book' that would be to deny its vitality. It is a busy but extremely pretty country town in which every twist and turn in the little streets and alleys provides a different vista. My strong recommendation for anyone thinking of visiting the Czech Republic is to fly into Prague, take a taxi into town because you won't need a car to see the sights, spend at least 3 nights there, then catch the coach/bus to Cesky Krumlov and enjoy another 3 days there. Catch the bus back, a 3 hour journey, taxi to the airport and you're back in the UK the same day.
