Photographer's Note

I've already published here two trial-views from the courtyards of Cesky Krumlov Castle.
In this way I wanted to write some historical background for this charming town.
So, we got to know the legend about "Division of the Rose" and some historical truth about foundation of the settlement.

Today it's high time to present fair part of the Castle.
Its complex is the largest and most important in the Czech Republic after the Prague Castle. It consists of forty buildings and constructions spread along one kilometer of the rocky hill. The castle gardens occupy eleven hectares. In addition to the main residence, the complex includes many administrative, economic, artisan and technical spaces: courtyards, grounds and both decorative and utility gardens.

Under the reign of the Rozmberks (1302-1602), Castle was turned into the rich "chateau" seat of the coming Reneiassance style. For that time, William of Rozmberk showed unusual business capabilities. He started new production areas: mining, shepherding, opening fish ponds, hop farming, malt housing. The estate was developing in all areas.
Importance of Cesky Krumlov never achieved the same level as it had under the Rozmberks.
