Where in the World is Gary? #138

This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.

I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!

The answer to yesterday’s place (#137) is Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic

This is the largest palace in a bevy of palaces. It is the epitome of ornate decadence.

It has a double staircase so that one climbing the stairs doesn’t have to meet another descending the stairs. There are four (4) monumental towers. Its symbol is the salamander. This place was the site of the world’s first sound and light show in 1952.
