Visiting the historic centre and castle of Krumau
08.06.2007 29 °C
Today should be a very nice day, nice weather, nice sight seeing, nice food...but unfortunately, after coming back from the castle, we found my honey's bag disappeared, the thief opened our car and stole it. Such a unlucky day! My honey said that it was his first time to encounter stealing, and almost could not believe. Because in Europe, the public security should be much more safer than Asia. But it was really a truth, we had to face the fact. However, it was also a good lesson for us, we will be much more careful where we go.
In front of our hut, there was a quiet lake. Everyday we could see some people swimming, or lying on the grass and enjoying the sunshine.
For entering the historical part of the city Krumau we passed through this big gate.
A first view of Krumau.
Then we crossed a bridge and took the first pictures of Krumau castle.
The inner city of Krumau consists of many small roads...
...and lots of souvenir shops.
There was a funny statue in front of a restaurant.
After walking through some of the small roads...
...we went up to the castle.
Just below the castle entrance there was a bear in a big cage area, walking around slowly, looked like very lonely...
Beside of the bear, it was its shit.
First we went up the big tower...
...which offered some nice views on Krumau.
Thereafter we had to wait until the main tour through the inner rooms of the castle started,
so we just walked around a bit,
until we could enter the inner rooms.
This carriage was only used for a single trip of the prince to visit the pope in Italy.
The dining room.
The blue saloon.
The bedroom of the queen.
The small theatre room.
Later we went to the upper part of the castle, to visit the castle's park.
Such a cute fountain.
Near the park we also could find some more nice views down on the city.
This was Czechia local food, very special! They put the soup and sausaages into the hollow bread.
The sweet Palatschinken with icecream.
