About this Mapmaker

I am an individual, who fell in love with Cesky Krumlov on my first visit back in January 2006. From October 2007, I have been trying to find ways in which Cesky Krumlov can become “a place to be” for local residents as well as “a place to visit” for tourists and visitors. I, with a lot of useful inputs from local residents, am creating a Green Map that rediscovers local charms, assets and strengths, that are often hidden under the beautiful townscape and historical buildings of Cesky Krumlov.

Statement of Purpose

Cesky Krumlov is a beautiful medieval town, located in Southern Bohemian region of the Czech Republic. In November 2008, the town was selected as one of the best authentic historic destinations, coming 16th in ranking, in the 5th annual destination-stewardship survey conducted by the National Geographic Traveler magazine (http://traveler.nationalgeographic.com/2008/11/historic-destinations-rat...).

With 300 protected historical buildings date back from the 13th century, its historical centre of 51.91 hector is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Cesky Krumlov is also well-known for its cultural, art and music events that are held throughout the year, especially in summer.

Its popularity among tourists has brought problems such as crowding and increases in prices. As a result, local people seem to have shifted away to surrounding suburbs.

I believe that the beauty of Cesky Krumlov lies in its long history and rich cultures of its local residents. The presence of local communities and their activities are important components in the evolution of cultures and traditions, which add new histories to the town.

Creating of a Green Map of Cesky Krumlov is about rediscovering of charms, assets and strengths of the local community, which are often hidden under the “museum-like” beauty of the historical centre. I am hoping that the map will bring in more people to Cesky Krumlov for it to become a dynamic and sustainable cultural centre that is enjoyed by both local residents and visitors.

Local Language Overview

チェコで最も美しいといわれている歴史都市チェスキークルムロフ。
中世の建物と街並みが保存された街全体がユネスコ世界遺産に指定されています。
2008年には、ナショナル・ジオグラフィック・トラベラーマガジンの
「ベスト・歴史観光名所」ランキングで16位に選ばれました。

街や城の美しさは、その歴史や文化、建物や街並みを保全するための
地元の人々の活動などを理解すると、さらに増します。
このグリーンマップでは、歴史や文化をつないできた場所、そして、
この街を単なる観光名所としてではなく、
住みよい街として発展させるための取組みを紹介していきます。
季節や天気、時間帯によって様々な顔を持つチェスキークルムロフの風景を
満喫できるお勧めスポットの情報もあります。

チェスキークルムロフを訪れる際には、ぜひこの地図を片手に、
街をゆっくり楽しんでください。

残念ながら、チェスキークルムロフでは近年、観光客が増加するにつれて、
街の人々の住まいや活動が郊外に移動しています。
このままではこの街は、中世の街並みが保存された「屋外博物館」になりかねません。

そのような危機感は、自治体や一部の住民も持っており
観光業と地域の持続可能な発展が両立する街づくりが始まっています。

そのような取組みや効果も感じていただける地図づくりを目指します。

皆様からのコメントやサイトの提案、お待ちしております。
どうぞよろしくお願いいたします。
