Our photography tour to Český Krumlov will take you on a photographic treat to shoot this picturesque little town listed in UNESCO. Český Krumlov abounds with old houses, narrow cobbled streets, and unforgettable vistas. It is set on the bend of the Vltava River, and the castle and chateau make you feel like you are in a fairy tale.

Your photo tour leader

You will visit Český Krumlov with a Czech professional landscape and travel photographer Jan Miřacký (read more about Jan) who knows the ins and outs of this historical town from a photography perspective.

Jan will assist you in finding compelling compositions, advise on camera settings and will make sure that you will leave Český Krumlov with numerous pictures that you will be proud of.

Photography focus

Our photography tour leverages the best times to shoot and spans overnight so we can shoot both sunset and sunrise and escape the crowds a little bit. We start in the late afternoon, shoot sunset and blue hour on day 1, and carry on to the next day when we finish about an hour after sunrise.

I offer optional trip extensions to see other spectacular places on the second day after the sunrise shoot and breakfast.

Another gem of UNESCO in the Czech Republic is a small historic town named Holašovice. After World War II, it was deserted until 1990 when people went back and restored the town. The vernacular houses represent so-called Rural Baroque style and were listed in UNESCO in 1998.

Unlike Český Krumlov, tourists mostly ignore it, so you can get a unique opportunity to get off-the-beaten-path and enjoy a UNESCO site without crowds.


Hluboká Castle

Many people say it’s the most beautiful castle in the Czech Republic. It was originally built in the 13th century in Gothic style, then expanded in Renaissance style and finally in the 18th century rebuilt into a Baroque style. On its premises, you find gorgeous gardens that can work as a foreground for your pictures. Hluboká Castle holds a status of the National Cultural Monument of the Czech Republic.
