Not only a history of the street names in the tiny, beautifully preserved old Czech town of Český Krumlov, this site has pictures of each street, often side-by-side old and new photos taken from the same vantage point. I wish all old towns and cities had such websites, but it’s a good thing they don’t, because I’d spend all my time immersed in them. Thanks for this wonderful site go to wood s lot.

(Incidentally, the town is next to České Budějovice, original home of Budweiser beer—Budejovice=Budweis in German.)


  1. Hey I am from the Czech Rep. too. I am from Bela Pod Pradedem. Where are you from?

  2. Hi Marina! I’m not from the CR, but Prague is one of my favorite cities, and I’d love to go back and see more of the country. (By the way, I can’t get to your website by clicking on your name; did you type it in correctly?)

  3. Hey, thanks for this. I spent five extremely happy days in Cesky Krumlov, and had practically forgotten about them until today.

  4. It is very beautiful. Did you like it? I want so much to go home and visit.

  5. *raises hand* Another Czech person here! Thanks for mentioning my favourite places. 🙂

  6. Yes, Cesky Krumlov is really South Bohemia’s fairytale town!

  8. Oh, the horror… I just visited this post via Random Link, and discovered I had neglected to link the phrase “this site,” so that the title of the post was meaningless! Amazingly, the site with that name is still in existence, so I added the link (and substituted archived ones for dead links). I note with a suppressed tut-tut that no one back in 2003 noticed the absence.
