  • Let's continue exploring,

  • Cesky Krumlov

  • On our second day in Cesky Krumlov,

  • it was so good to have breakfast provided at our hotel.

  • As it was our first time in Cesky Krumlov,

  • we decided to join a free walking tour

  • with Wiseman Free Tours.

  • The same company that did our ghost tour the previous night.

  • The medieval town of Cesky Krumlov

  • has so much history that there are so many interesting stories to be told.

  • I love the mix of Gothic,

  • Renaissance and Baroque architecture

  • that you can find throughout the town.

  • We're going to the castle!

  • A: Walking up to the castle...

  • A: Where there's bears!

  • Did you know there are bears in the moat of the Cesky Krumlov castle?

  • A: It's in the corner... W: Awww...

  • Can you possibly ever get sick of this view?

  • We just finished our walking tour with Jan from Wiseman Free Walking Tours in Cesky Krumlov.

  • It was the same guy that we had last night for our ghost tour

  • and he was just such a friendly guy

  • and he had so much information.

  • We are currently in the gardens...

  • the castle gardens.

  • We came across this area where there's no one else around

  • and we got it all to ourselves.

  • We got a bit of a view of the city here.

  • And in the distance you can see the castle tower, which is this one here.

  • That's really famous here.

  • If you guys look closely... let me try and zoom in for you...

  • You can see all the detail in the frescoes that they've drawn onto the bulding.

  • So, what our guide said was, originally,

  • this building was built with a Gothic style.

  • So, see how it's all colourful now?

  • It wasn't always like that.

  • When it was Gothic style, it was basically just plain colours...like cement.

  • And then...when they Renaissance came around,

  • they started to decorate it with frescoes.

  • When you look down here, can you guys see there's something that's not quite like the others?

  • You see this window here, this one right here on the right.

  • That's drawn on...it's not a real window.

  • If you see above, there's a walkway,

  • and to support that walkway, there's a beam

  • right where that window is.

  • So they couldn't actually put a real window there.

  • But then during that period, for the Renaissance style,

  • they wanted everything to be symmetrical

  • and to line up.

  • So they had to draw a window there.

  • A: Hello, let's go W: *laughs*

  • If you are ever in Cesky Krumlov,

  • I definitely recommend a visit to the Cesky Krumlov castle gardens.

  • Look how pretty it is!

  • Can you guys guess what this is?

  • We are walking towards...

  • ...the biggest revolving auditorium in the world.

  • If you guys are wondering what a revolving auditorium is,

  • basically what happens is...

  • whenever they change the scene in a theatre play,

  • the auditorium spins.

  • A: Yes, the seating area spins.

  • A: Like a giant um...giant yum cha...

  • W: Lazy Susan?

  • A: It fits 650 people.

  • So every time they want to change a scene,

  • the auditorium spins

  • and then you get a new stage set.

  • A: Look at that ice chill!

  • This one's strawberry flavour,

  • I haven't had a strawberry flavour one before.

  • A: And this is a...I don't know...bit of ice cream,

  • a bit of ice block,

  • swirled up.

  • I think it's strawberry inside.

  • W: Do you even remember the name?

  • A: Twister, some kind of Typhoon, Cyclone...? W: At least give it a name...

  • See, my one's Calippo...

  • Strawberry!

  • So, back by the river again today for lunch.

  • This time we're at the restaurant next door to the one we were at yesterday.

  • This restaurant is a vegetarian restaurant.

  • Can you believe that we are eating vegetarian food?

  • This is the combination plate, and over here this the dal plate.

  • So, this is Indian curry with chickpeas and lentils and um...

  • it comes with bread for you to dip.

  • And over here we have the same chickpea lentil thing.

  • A: Here...that's the same. W: Oh, here it is.

  • A: This is different...

  • W: Some peas and stuff... A: It's got some vegetables in it.

  • W: And here there are some beans.

  • And we got some tofu and mushrooms.

  • Yeh, looks like a good mix.

  • Oh, and there's rice in the middle.

  • Hidden under the rocket.

  • A: And we got bread here...perfect!

  • We fell so in love with Cesky Krumlov,

  • but, all good things must come to an end.

  • And so, it was time to move on to our next destination,

  • Vienna.
