Notes on the Geography of The Czech Republic: Cesky Krumlov: Photo 1

world pictures The Czech Republic: Cesky Krumlov

The town's museum has a splendid ceramic model of the town as it was in the year 1800, when it was (as it remained until World War II) the property of the Schwartzenberg family, whose castle stands in several sections to the left of the higher green-topped tower in the background. The model shows several features no longer extant, such as the towers over the entrance gate at the lower right and, above them, the green, bulbous tower at the Church of St. Vitus, which was replaced about 1900 by a gothic spire. The town square shows up, too. All told, there are about 800 structures in the model, each one made separately. The river enclosing the town is the Vlatava, known in German as the Moldau. German, by the way, was the language spoken by most people here until 1945, when the town's German population was deported.
