The historic center of Cesky Krumlov is best understood and appreciated when a qualified local explains the culture. This lovely "village" is pedestrian friendly, with every building worth a stop to admire. But get the information first hand with Wisemanfreetour, who meet at 10:30 and 2:00...try to get Andrej as a guide....much history to learn. Or, just wander around and... More

every building looks like it is really old. so pretty. Hotel was nice. But hard to find hotels by road, as so many pedestrian precincts.

The town was amazing. The tour guide we had was very good. The disappointing thing was city discovery tours in Prague used old vans that were very cramped to take us on a 2.5 hour tour one way. My wife and I have travelled in Europe many times and this was the most uncomfortable vehicle we ever used from any... More

Started our visit in the gardens which are amazing & then walked into the old town. What a surprise, very picturesque, quaint with lots of restaurants, typical touristy shops, very busy as this is driving distance from Prague! Well worth a visit.

We took an 10 hour tour (which included the 2.5 hour drive each way) from Prague to Cesky Krumlov, but I could have easily stayed here overnight and enjoyed two full days, if not more here. This place was easily the most majestic of the trip to Czech Republic. As soon as you walk down from the hill towards the... More

Old town with lots on character. Great views along the river and from the hill overlooking the town. Plenty of places to eat and good shopping. The only down side is the high number of tourists in high summer. Been there now in August and April, my choice is defiantly April.

I'm so glad we added Cesky Krumlov to our itinerary! It was a beautiful, quaint town with a river running through it. The cobblestone streets and beautiful buildings were the setting for the historic center of this medieval town. We booked a private tour with Oldriska Balouskova at http://www.privatekrumlovguide.com/. She made our few hours there a wonderful experience. Many have... More
