Underrated Tourist spots – Cesky Krumlov | The small town of Cesky Krumlov was first mentioned in 1240. In the late 15th century gold was found next to the town and German miners flocked in. For centuries the area around Cesky Krumlov was part of various German-Austrian territories. But in 1945 – after World War II – the town’s longstanding German-speaking population was expelled and it became part of Czechoslovakia. Between 1945 and 1990 communists ruled Czechoslovakia, and Krumlov fell into disrepair. Since the abrupt meltdown of communism in Eastern Europe much of the town’s former beauty has been restored. Cesky Krumlov is now a holiday destination popular with tourists from Germany, Austria and China. The town’s most famous son is Egon Schiele. Krumlov has a museum dedicated to this expressionistic painter.
