In 1584 Vilhelm of RoÏmberk, master of the house of RoÏmberks, knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece – highest order of Prague, invited the Order of Jesuits to Cesky Krumlov. He built a university monastery for them. This has recently been extensively reconstructed preserving the beautiful Renaissance architecture and creating your 70 room hotel – The Ruze. The furniture, rooms and public areas are a delight. Set in the absolute centre of town, the terrace has beautiful views of the Vltava River. Your stay here will be an unforgettable experience.
Hotel Stadtkrug, Salzburg - 1 Night
This 4 star hotel is located in the centre of the old town, a few minutes walk to all the notable sights of town.
I enjoyed staying more than one night in each place. Hotels were all very good, nice and central so that when I had 'freetime' I could walk to places. I don't use public transport when away as I don't feel confident using it and some other tours have a high class hotel, but it is miles away from things. Really liked this fact with my Medieval Bohemian Christmas.
Enjoyed everything about my tour!
Wealth of knowledge of my tour director was excellent! I was most impressed with the driver's knowledge of so many city road - and skilful driving in tight situations.
A most enjoyable and comfortable tour!
The tour was absolutely fabulous.
