Český Krumlov - or Bohemian Crumlaw - is a remote outpost in the Czech Republic located in the hills of the Southern Bohemina region, between Linz, Austria and Prague. It's small and a little hard to get to but is also considered one of the most beautiful places in Europe.
The thing is, you can't get anywhere from Český Krumlov It is connected to society with questionably maintained 1.5 lane roads (2 lanes is generous) for about an hour or 2 in any direction. When we were on our way there I cracked that it felt like the opening to the Horror movie Hostel, where a bunch of 20 somethings check into a Slovakian Hostel and don't check out.
Turns out, the movie Hostel was filmed in Český Krumlov. Happy to report though, we returned home alive and not in the least bit dismembered.
