Beautiful old medieval town square with fountain and colonnaded buildings surround the square with little shops or restaurants on the ground floor and apartments or hotels on the upper floors. Benches allow visitors to sit and take in the historic feeling and rest from walking around this charming little town.

This is a small, attractive world heritage site, but there is not much to see other than the cathedral and the castle. The town itself mostly is restaurants, hotels and shops just like so many other places. Getting there from Prague can be a pain, as there is not convenient train service. We tried to book a bus to the... More

Cesky Krumlov has the most beautiful historical center, full of great architecture, lovely shops, and just an amazing atmosphere. The small town feel makes it able to walk around everywhere, and there are gorgeous views and picturesque moments everywhere you look! The castle and its gorgeous grounds, the small bridges with river views, absolutely stunning! Love all the shops here... More

A great place for a visit. Fantastic old buildings, situated in stunning scenery with the river running through the town. Great restaurants and shopping. Here for the day, but would have loved to stay overnight and explore

If you re going to visit Czech Republic, please, find time to visit – except Prague for sure- this small accurate and nice-to-see city. Cesky Krumlov is very old and gothic, with bright roofs and smiley people. Main sightseeing of the city is Krumlov castle – one of the hugest in Czech Republic and beautiful a lot!!

I first visited this town when the country opened its borders and it wasnt anywhere near as nice as it is now. I visited with friends from Austria and walked round this wonderful place. The people of this town should be very proud of their achievements since it is now a little jewel and I would highly recommend anyone given... More

A great place for a short visit. With the tower which always reminds me of a giant ice cream. The square is similar to every small town in the Czech Republic, with the river running thought the centre and added bonus of the castle overlooking this historic centre.

The castle, Schiele-museum, the tiny shops and excellent cafés and bars. A walk through the historic Center offers amazing views and possibilities for excellent shoppings of handcrafted bohemian glas sculptures etc

This is a lovely town, very quaint with rambling streets filled with antique shops, gems shops, and lots of tourist stuff like magnets and pens, but I could not find any floaty pens at all. Anyway, the whole town is fairytale like, there are bears in a moat that surrounds the town, which was not my favorite thing since I... More
