Cesky Krumlov is an ancient medieval town about 100km from Prague. To travel from Prague we reserved seats on a bus that travels directly from Prague to Cesky Krumlov daily. To get to the bus we took a tram from our hotel to the bus station. The bus ride is about 3 hours from Prague to Cesky Krumlov. All you... More

Highlight of our trip to the Czech Republic - beautiful small town along a river at the foot of a huge castle. Lots of shops and restaurants. Must see the Krumlov Castle and the Baroque Theatre with its scene-shifting machinery.

We read about this city in our travel books and were told by others to visit. So on our way to Prague we did just that and stayed 2 days & 2 nights. What a Jewel. We love the Medieval towns.

A lovely old town, lots of small shops to go in and out of, not crowded, and picturesque at every turn. Very different than Prague, a different, slower vibe and a nice place to visit. The drive between the two cities is beautiful.

We took a leisurely approach to our visit here. Spent three nights in a flat rental and enjoyed two full, unhurried days of the local sights. No car necessary. Even though it rained for parts of our visit, that cleared the streets of the tourists which made it that much more enjoyable. Head to the castle when it opens for... More

Loved the whole town, one of the highlights of the CR. The winding river, the castle, the lit arches of the causeway at night, the restaurants by the river. All beautiful!

We had a wonderful transfer from Ceski Krumlov to Salzburg with a lovely driver called Petr. Whilst we felt it was expensive at first because there was only 2 of us in the car it was well worth the money. Petr was polite, extremely attentive, very informative and spoke great English. It was door to door service with a stop... More

Cesky Krumlov is like stepping onto a movie set, it seems frozen in time with the most beautiful views. It's easy to navigate through the small town to experience all of it's beauty. I recommend climbing the castle tower to get the full scope of the village. This was a stopover from our trip from Prague to Budapest so the... More

The centre of the old town is central to most of the hotels and easily reached along the old cobblestone pathways and roads. The town has been refurbished and the facades of the buildings make for wonderful photos. There's plenty of cafes, restaurants and souvenir shops without the high-end retailers having taken over. It's a very peaceful walk around and... More
