Re: Krumlov Castle, Český Krumlov, Czech Republic. Where Gumbo was #68

I first visited Cesky Krumlov in 1995, when it was still being restored and the tower repainted, as it had deteriorated during the communist period. I would also advise anyone visiting the area also to see nearby Rozmberk, which is a pretty village with a quite impressive castle, but with far fewer tourists (First 2 pictures). Prague is rightly considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, but there is much more to see in the Czech Republic including Cesky Krumlov and South Bohemia.

Cesky Krumlov like many of the cities behind the old "iron Curtain" seem to be frozen in time. I'm glad I visited eastern Europe before the arrival of McRonalds appeared on street corners. The Czech Republic has produced excellent cars for 50 years but was starved of cash by Moscow for many years. But it's just now become one of the top producers in Europe.

A fascinating collection, PHeymont! It's amazing what you can see when you look around -- and down at your feet! Here's another for your collection, from the Czech Republic.

Given the lack of activity, I think it's time to call an end to this puzzle. We received just one emailed response, which was sent to us by Roderick Simpson. But was also the correct one! Congratulations to Roderick who correctly identified this as being the Castle Tower in Cesky Krumlov, the Czech Republic. The discussion will be posted tomorrow morning and we'll have a new puzzle for you on Saturday.

Gumbo's Pic of the Day, April 21, 2014: Cesky Krumlov, the Czech Republic

Probably the prettiest small medieval town I've ever seen is Cesky Krumlov, a 2.5 hour drive southwest from Prague.  It seems little changed these past 500 years and fortunately was not damaged by bombing in the Great Wars.   The town is...
