Everyone wanting to get out of Prague for the day is directed to this town, 3.5 hours by train. There are many tourists up until about 4pm. There are interesting buildings and towers and a castle, but the best is just drifting. It is easy to see it all in a day.

Cesky Krumlov is a storybook village with quaint, gingerbread-like buildings, cobblestone streets, beautiful stream, nestled in a valley and watched over by a good-sized castle. There are hundreds of small shops, cafes, restaurants and other tourist attractions. Apparently this town of 16,000 has about 2 million visitors per year. Perhaps one third of the tourists were Asians, so apparently the... More

So much to love about this picturesque town...never have I seen so many museums in a small town...which in itself is well-maintained and preserved...great dining options...loads of jewellery shops...truly deserving of its World Heritage listing...love, love, love! A must-do!!

This village is an hidden gem. Give yourself a whole morning/afternoon to explore it. Great for pictures, even though a little touristic. Nice restaurants and handycraft shops.

Worth a full day with an overnight stay even better. Took a 7am day trip excursion from Prague with a 6pm return. Front end city walking tour with Karolina K from Cesky Kruov tours. A+. Set the tone for the rest if our day.

The area is wonderful for walking through the little street and along the river. Plenty of shops and places to eat. Easily spent two days there.

Not easy to get to and van/bus from Vienna, Salzberg, or Prague is recommended. There are affordable privately shared shuttles that take you door to door (CK Shuttle) or the Student bus which is a bit longer but has wifi and televisions and very cheap. The city is old and feels captured in medieval times - small winding cobblestone streets.... More

It's always a good measure of a village if you can enjoy yourself on a dull and wet day! Pros: Period architecture en mass, great lunch at the Grand Hotel, boutique stores that sold a range of eclectic items never seen before, friendly locals and convenient car parking close to the Old Town Centre. Cons: It was wet! My wife... More
