Latrán - Old Town District

Latrán is the name of both the town quarter and the street passing through this quarter. At first it was the name of the area below the castle of Český Krumlov, which Wilhelm of Rosenberg linked to the inner town to form a whole in 1555. Latrán Street starts at Lazebnický (Barber) Bridge and ends at Budějovická Gate. Apart from a number of important burgher houses, the former St. Jodock’s Church is found here, and the street leads to the castle complex and the Monastery of the Order of Knights of the Cross with a Red Star.
