If you visit the Czech Republic you need to see Cesky Krumlov and visit the castle. This is a small, quaint historic town that has no shortage of charm. Inside the castle is one of the oldest theatre's complete with the original sound machines and facades. Also, there's a bear near the entrance of the castle ... I missed it... More

Wonderfully preserved medieval town with fantastic sceneries. I can recommend to take 1 -2 hours walk around the city - but not only on the main streets. Near Vltava river there are not yet reconstructed but very interesting buildings. Although there are large groups of tourists everywhere, near the river you can still find some quiet places. Historical centre is... More

I was there in 2014. It was covered in snow and whilst very very cold, it was like something out of a fairytale! I chose Cesky Kromlov over Saltzburg because (a) I had been to Saltzburg, and (b), friends told how amazing it was, and I was not disappointed!

A great city, loved the history and culture, despite the fact you can walk the whole center within a day. Definitely worth visiting when in Czech Republic.

It is perfect. This place is amazing and worth spending some days to explore it. We enjoyed long walks across the old town with old buildings and narrow streets. It is like living history. The castle is very beautiful. Everything is perfect and beautiful in Cesky Krumlov. Love it.

The advantages of the castle you can read in guidebooks - high historical and artistic value is undeniable. But the old city below - miracles! amazing narrow streets, old buildings, musicians, artists, cafe and restaurants. And kayaking around the city..... you do not want to leave out of here. A tour of some of the things you have to pay.

No idea why some people give this two stars. Mind, boggles, etc. There is good reason why this is listed as a World Heritage site, and the reason is that it's absolutely breathtaking. So it's full of tourists? Well, yes. It's crassly over-commercialized? Indeed, there is not a square foot without a crap shop. So what? Look up a bit,... More

The whole place is fantastic. The atmosphere with the historical buildings, narrow streets, the winding river, little restaurants and bars and everything watched over by the majestic castle on top of the hill. Photo opportunities everywhere. A place to relax and walk around with a smile on your face. We loved it.

Without question UNESCO town Cesky Krumlov is one of the most charming places my husband and I have ever seen. Built in 1609 it is a fortified town, the extremely high walls of which were constructed on two huge rock formations. In the part of the wall built between the two formations are the entryway, multiple arches above, and a... More
