Český Krumlov—Czech Republic

Český Krumlov is the second best-preserved historical town in Bohemia, after Prague, and designated as one of UNESCO's World Monuments.

Legend holds the name Krumlov is derived from the German "Krumme Aue", which may be translated as "crooked meadow". "Český" simply means Czech, or Bohemian, which is actually one and the same, as opposed to Moravian or Silesian. The town was first mentioned in documents from 1253, where Krumlov was called Chrumbonowe.
