There is something about time-lapse videos that can contextualize an entire city in a minute or two. That’s what Scott Herder and Megan Indoe have done for Český Krumlov, a small town in the southern corner of the Czech Republic that is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The town’s Medieval castle, Renaissance houses, Baroque theater and modern sources of entertainment are all on display in this rich portrayal of a playful and fantastical Bohemia.
