Krumlov Castle, world's second largest

Czesky Krumlov is a charming little town about 100 miles south of Prague near the Austrian border.  During mideivel times, it was the center of commerce in eastern Europe, but now its major attraction is the Krumlov Castle, the world’s second largest, built in the 1300’s.  Built so well that visitors can still climb to the top of the tower to get a bird’s eye view of the entire city.  The small red and white awning in the lower right of the photo is a cafe along the Vtalva River, giving you a better perspective of the massive castle.
