Crisky Krumlov isn't the biggest attraction in the European map, or even the Czech map but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in character. It's a small magical town, like something out of a Disney movie. It has a castle, a moat, cobblestone paths, bears (in the moat) and the most wonderful stories of days gone by.... More

We visited CK in the fall, and it was a great pleasure to walk around the gardens outside and explore the area. It is a truly wonderful place.

This is a must-see city. You can get there by bus from the Prague bus station, and is 2-3 hours drive depending what bus you get on. Shoot for the Student bus. It's the fastest. We stayed right in the center and could walk everywhere. It all looks like a medieval village, complete with a castle on the hill and... More

Cesky is so quaint and yet on any day you can see locals going about their everyday lives in such beautiful and unique surroundings. Cobbled streets are towered over by the Castle itself and surrounded by the fast running Vltava River

The town has been restored beautifully. Lots to see. In the high season it becomes quite crowded with tourists so a tip is - go outside of the main season. We visited in February and felt we had the place to ourselves.

Visited in December would advise every one to see this splendid town so clean very cheap as they still use the krona .Good legs needed as it is steep in places would recommend this as a well worth a visit .

If you're travelling to the Czech Republic, Cesky Krumlov is a must! Although very small, you can easily spend two nights there (3 days), bearing in mind all the museums, hiking sites, and the bars available.
