Český Krumlov is a town in the South Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. Its historic centre, centred around the Český Krumlov Castle, has been a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1992 because of its well-preserved Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture.
Krumlov has its origin in Middle High German Krumme Aue, which can be translated as crooked meadow, after a bend of the Vltava. The town's name begins with Český to differentiate it from Moravský Krumlov in south Moravia. (Wikipedia)
