Discover a city that has not changed in the 20th century, and get to know the landscape painting of Egon Schiele from a local. Even though he stayed in Krumlov only for a short period in 1911, the city marked him and the memory of it is present in his later works also.
The tour will take you to the less popular areas of the city, where you can enjoy the calm and have a relaxed day during your trip.

Krumau, his mother's birthplace, was indisputably an old city, a medieval time capsule whose winding streets and crumbling buildings embodied for Schiele an eternity of human decay and persistence. Situated around and within a tortuous bend in the Moldau river, Krumau has a compact, islandlike configuration that Schiele found compositionally intriguing."
