Every year in June, the fabulous city of Český Krumlov is transported for three days back to the Renaissance period and the rule of the last Rožmberks. The streets and squares are filled with the roar of knightly tournaments, historical crafts fairs, banquets and medieval music. The highlight of the festival is a spectacular procession in historical costumes, featuring knights on horseback and particularly many notables linked to the history of the city. Popular is the jousting tournament, recalling the past legend about cutting roses, live chess pieces on a giant chess board, festive fireworks over the city, and games of the period for children and adults.
