4k Czech Republic – Český Krumlov walk at Five-Petalled Rose Festival 🇨🇿 HDR ASMR
Today, on our 4k Czech Republic walk, we will visit this fantastic city Český Krumlov during the five-petal rose festival for the first time after a two-year pause due to quarantine. You will see the solemn procession itself in the following video, but for now, enjoy the views of the city.
The Five-Petalled Rose Festival is a complete town-wide historical festival that takes you back to the reign of the last members of the noble Rožmberk family, Vilém and Petr Vok of Rožmberk. Every year, the festival scenario is based on the essential landmark years of Český Krumlov and specific historical events associated with the Rožmberk family and the Old Town. The festival’s highlights are the day and night historical parades set in the Gothic and Renaissance periods and featuring over 700 costumed participants, a knightly tournament commemorating the legend of the Division of the Rose, historical markets at Český Krumlov Castle, and the Old Town with more than 130 booths featuring period wares and demonstrations of historical crafts, fireworks over the town, historical games and other historical programs for children and adults, medieval music, theatres, historical dance, historical sword fighting, jugglers and jokers, fakirs and fire shows, and lots more. Nearly 150 performances and programs take place throughout the three days of the festival on ten stages in the historic town center.
Český Krumlov is a town in the South Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. The historic center with the Český Krumlov Castle complex is protected by law as an urban monument reservation. Since 1992, it has been a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its well-preserved Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture.
Thanks to the convenient location by the river, the area has been permanently inhabited. The area’s oldest settlement goes back to the Older Stone Age (70,000–50,000 BC). The mass settlement is proven in the Bronze Age (1,500 BC). Celtic settlements were here in the Younger Iron Age (c. 400 BC), and the first Slavic settlement from the 6th century AD. Trade routes led through this territory along the Vltava in the Early Middle Ages.
The Český Krumlov Castle was founded shortly before 1250 by a local branch of the noble Vítkovci family, descendants of Witiko of Prčice. The first written mention of Český Krumlov was in a 1253 deed as Chrumbenowe. The town was established in two stages. The first part, Latrán, was built spontaneously below the castle, settled chiefly by people who had some administrative connection with the castle. The second part was founded as a brand new settlement called Old Town. Since the town’s foundation, Czech and German nationalities have been represented. A Jewish community has been documented since 1334.
In 1302 the Vítkovci line became extinct. King Wenceslaus II, who acquired the estate and castle by escheat, ceded it to the Rosenberg family, who later made it the primary residence of their family. Peter I of Rosenberg, the Lord Chamberlain of King John of Bohemia, had the present upper castle erected in the early 14th century. Under his rule, the Rosenberg estates flourished. Český Krumlov achieved the highest prosperity in the 15th century during the reign of Oldřich II of Rosenberg when the estate territory was considerably enlarged.
The Rosenbergs strongly promoted trade and crafts within the town walls. In the late 15th century, when gold was found next to the town, German miners came to settle, which shifted the ethnic balance even more. In one of the churches, the sermons were preached in Czech until the 1780s, when the Church of Saint Judoc was closed. In 1555, William of Rosenberg joined the town parts of Latrán and Old Town, which had been separate, and unification the town. In the late 16th century, he had the castle rebuilt in the Renaissance style.
