South Bohemian Creative Retreats

Houses in Cesky Krumlov




Milkwood Artist Residence and Milkwood, s.r.o., are dedicated to promoting international cultural and scholarly exchanges through residency programs and assistive services.

Where we are

Milkwood Artist Residence is located in the South Bohemian region of the Czech Republic, in the village of Cesky Krumlov, which is about 2.5 hours' drive from Prague, 3.5 hours from Vienna, and 1 hour from Linz. See maps.

How to arrive

International visitors can fly into major airports in Prague or Vienna. Daily trains and buses from both cities travel to the South Bohemian town of Ceske Budejovice, which is 20 minutes' drive from Cesky Krumlov. Local trains and buses commute daily between the two towns; however, some visitors opt to take a taxi for about 30 USD. See Transportation Links for more details. Infrequently, while on other errands, Milkwood staff and associates may pick up visitors in Prague or Ceske Budejovice.
