Brown is not drab – it is the color of Mother Earth itself! It is rich, fertile soil and plowed land. It is rocks and sand and the bark on trees. It is also glacier-stripped mountains and volcanic remains, like here in the Highlands of Scotland. There is a sturdy, rugged appeal to brown.

These are the rooftops of Cesky Krumlov, a captivating little medieval village in the Czech Republic. You enter through the arches of an ancient city wall to discover a maze of cobblestone streets, a meandering river, and one of the finest castle complexes in the world. The castle is uniquely surrounded by a moat filled with bears instead of water! Cesky Krumlov is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is easily loved by all who visit.
