The city of Český Krumlov is not just one of the most beautiful Czech cities that attracts people with many extraordinary monuments and beautiful sceneries that change by day and season. Český Krumlov is also a spiritual center, a melting pot of many hidden and apparent influences. There is a written and secret history of Český Krumlov, and it is sometimes very difficult to separate vision from reality. This book about Český Krumlov is not intended to be a regular tourist guide; it would like to look at the city from a completely different point of view. It would like to examine the connection between the esoteric, i.e. the hidden, and the apparent, which is important for better understanding and represents the so-called genius loci, i.e. the spirit of the place.
