For anyone planning a trip to the Czech Republic, Cesky Krumlov is breathtaking. This small town that resembled a fairy tale, quickly established itself as one of my favorite places in all of Europe. I waited to collect my water sample until driving south 2.5 hours from Prague to visit this location, not too far from the Austrian border.
The fountain in the main square presented itself as ideal the evening before. I hoped that the sun would be in the right position the next day and we returned repeatedly to make sure. Cass and I climbed the castle tower as seen in the above photograph to show an "aerial" perspective of the fountain below.

If this water looks refreshing, it was all I could do not to slide in while the hot sun was beating through me. It was the clearest, most enticing fountain I ever laid eyes on.
