Five-Petalled Rose Festival

The time of the summer solstice is a great celebration of the Renaissance in Český Krumlov. You can return to the reigning time of the Lords of Rožmberk and enjoy the atmosphere of the celebrating town during the Five-Petalled Rose Festival.

Saint Vitus Church

The Saint Vitus Church in Český Krumlov is a significant sight of the late Gothic from 1407-1439 with later modifications. In 1995, the Church was declared part of the National Cultural Heritage.

The Church of St. Vitus is a Gothic three naval construction from the period of 1407-1439. It was built on the foundations of an older building from the year 1309. The Gothic entrance portal was erected in 1410. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the Church continued to be extended and modified.

 

The Church is formed by three parallel arcades merged with a five-sided elongated presbyterium; there are rectangular multistoried sacristies on both sides with the Chapels of Resurrection and the St. John of Nepomuk Chapel, and the antechamber situated on the northern side. The occidental façade of the church incorporates a tower with quadrangular Roman window openings on the landing level changing to eight-sided openings higher up. The uppermost part of the spire is pseudogothic in style, dating to 1893-1894.

Český Krumlov Synagogue

The 1909 Synagogue is the pearl of the Art Nouveau architecture of Český Krumlov with some Neo-Romanesque features. At the moment, it is used as a meeting place, and a multifunctional cultural, artistic and social space.

 

The Synagogue in Český Krumlov with an octagonal tower and abstemious use of Neo-Romanesque features was built in 1909 by the local Jewish community. It had only been fulfilling its purpose for 30 years when it came under the occupation of the Sudetenland in 1938. After World War II, it briefly served as a house of prayer for soldiers of the U.S. Army, later on, it was used by the Evangelic Churches and eventually, it became a storage place. In the post-war period, the site became the property of the town of Český Krumlov which returned it to the hands of the Jewish community after 1990.
