Czech Republic: Litomysl Old Town

Litomysl has one of the largest marketplace squares in the Czech Republic, its elongated shape is surrounded with hundreds of renaissance and baroque houses with arcades and vaulted ground floors (Czech composer Smetana was born in one of them). Churches are abound here as well, including the spectacular Piarist Church of the Discovery of the Holy Cross. But the main attraction is most certainly the Litomysl Castle (next post).
