Cesky Krumlov – the Five Petal Rose Festival

With the opportunity to spend a few days in the beautiful UNESCO town to Cesky Krumlov, we all head across the Czech Republic, from blazing sunshine into pouring rain. We have come for the famous Five-petalled rose festival, a 3 day extravaganza of Renaissance costumes, historic music, knights jousting and lots of pig knuckles cooked on fires downed with flagons of local beer. The festival name comes from the Rožmberk crest of a 5 petal red rose, which is celebrated on the weekend of summer solstice.

But instead of the glorious sunshine we had hoped for stair-rods of rain. Big heavy drops and lots of it. Both days we were in the town we got soaked, but as is often the case, the sun occasionally poked through and we made the most of it

Český Krumlov has also been used as filming locations for movies such as the 2006 films The Illusionist and Hostel as well as the 1970s German movie Traumstadt (Dream City).

It was great fun watching the novices coming over the weir.

Everyone was dressed up, shame the weather was quite so horrid.

As a family we are finally hitting the wall in terms of spending 24 hours a day in each others pockets. Crickey – its’s exhausting!!!!! We had a bit of fireworks yesterday, but it was quite cathartic and today was much better. I think we have realised that the routine of daily life needs a bit more order! Also the two year old is proving a challenge. I guess we are just happy that we are ironing out the issues now and not in more challenging places in the world.

Panorama looking out from the town. It stayed dry for about 2 more minutes!

    I usually do not drop a bunch of remarks, however I browsed a few remarks
    on Cesky Krumlov – the Five Petal Rose Festival | Five Tourists.
    I do have a few questions for you if you tend not to mind.
    Is it only me or do a few of these responses appear like they are coming from brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are writing at other online sites, I would like to keep up with you.
    Would you make a list of the complete urls of all your social community
    sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
