Anniversary at Cesky Krumlov

So, we've been happily married for three years now! Yeah! And, we decided that we wanted to celebrate by going to Cesky Krumlov. Dan's never been there before, is there even a question if I've been there? So we looked at pictures online and got excited to go trippin'. I told the Crains about our plans and they said, "How about you go and we'll watch Vinson." Okay!! I said without a second's thought. So Friday we took a bus out (3 hours) to Cesky Krumlov and crossed our fingers (or held our thumbs if you're Czech) that Vinson would be good. Cesky krumlov is a really pretty city. It's one of the best preserved historical cities in the Czech Republic and is really cute. The town is situated along two horseshoebends in the Vltava river and has a really cool castle. Friday we explored the city by wandering aimlessly around. It's small enough that you can see the whole city this way. These pictures probably tell the story best:

At around seven there was hardly anyone out on the streets anymore. We got a good look at the castle in dusk and didn't have to fight for a spot along the railing to see the bears. Cesky Krumlov is famous for having some bears outside the castle. Right now there are three of them.
Bright and early the next morning we went on a tour of the castle. There are 5 tour routes to choose from but there's a really cool ballroom that we wanted to see so we went on tour number 1.
