Points of Interest
The Egon Schiele Art Centre devoted to the work of the eminent Austrian painter, Egon Schiele (1890 – 1918), is also worth a visit. He lived in Český Krumlov for a long time, his mother having come from there. However, the Egon Schiele Art Centrum does not only display Schiele’s work, but also holds interesting exhibitions of other modern international painters.
