My favorite part of the day was touring the Český Krumlov Castle. It was a new learning experience to learn about the royal families and how the castle had various owners. I never knew much about the history of the Czech Republic and this was an unique way to learn about their history. I learned about the Rosenberg family and the Schwarzenbergs, and how now the castle is a national heritage site. I also enjoying exploring beyond the castle grounds and hiking up part of a mountain. From there I was able to see all of the town, castle, and surrounding mountains. It was a breathtaking view and I am sure I will never forget it. Then, I explored the palace gardens and found the Baroque Theatre which is in the courtyard. It was an unforgettable experience learning about the history of the castle while also having the opportunity to explore the town and surrounding area on our own.
