We arrived there at 15.00 and we left at 19.00 and it was more than ebough. We booked a tour guide who took us around the castle. The whole tour was worthing. The city centre is small with cute small shops and restaurants. On our way to the bus we found a place making a traditional dessert, called Trdelnik. It... More

Nothing to add to previous excellent reviews except that it can get exceptionally busy in high season (July August)so think about your timings to try and avoid the crowds

A very well preserved historical town center, beatifully set on two hills protected by snaking Vltava river. Old picturesque houses, twisting streets, a castle with beatiful interiors. Take a tour in the castle, it is well worth it. Climb the castle tower - great views. I you go out of the main summer season, you will have quite a nice... More

We visit Cesky main plaza and there you can find a little of everything. There is a visitor information center where you can find proper information and local tour times for your trip. It's surrounded with hotels, restaurants and give shops. We recommend this place. Until my next review.

A fairy tale medieval town, worth a two-day visit by those who choose only Prague as a destination. Perfectly preserved through time, it offers a magnificent view of colourful houses of different styles, around the Moldava and open canals. A true gem not to be missed.

Been here few times. There are few parking areas in the center, cost of parking is not very high. It was rainy but still was good for some walks. We went in one of many small traditional restaurants in center where enjoyed soup in bread bowl while waiting rain to finish. Cesky Krumlov is located on the banks of river... More

The Vitava river makes many loops, a perfect shrine for this very quaint village: colorful houses, cobble stoned streets, a center town 90% pedestrian (you may drop your luggage by car but then need to promptly vacate the center and park in one of the 3 outside car parks). It was a great break from super busy Prague! Between Prague... More

Whilst you have to battle your way around the swarms of Chinese and Japanese tour groups all taking constant selfies you can start to enjoy the charm of the place. But really, be prepared for the Asian infestation of this beautiful town. EOther come early of late. And wear sensible walking shoes as cobble roads though out.

Great old historical European little town. It's fairy tale like. This is the real life Disneyland when it comes to impressive castles. The town is great for a stroll with some steep pathways but distances are not too far within this small town. Unfortunaly the Egon Schieler museum was not yet opened for exhibition in march but the museum shop... More
