The old town square in Cesky Krumlov has an amazing mix of building styles. Our local guide (Mr Rastislav) was particularly knowledgeable of the town centre and has even published a book of the "ghost stories of Cesky". Several years ago when I visit CK after 25 Dec - there was only 1 Christmas Market stall in the square. I... More

It's great to walk and see. Arts on every corner. Smaller than Praque but not less small impression.

Cesky Krumlov is definitely worth the effort. Much smaller than Prague and much less touristy by comparison. I think 2 full days would be plenty to really enjoy all the sights, cafes and shops without rushing and feeling like you've missed anything. The castle, the old town, the shops, the markets - it's great! Beautiful in winter, cold but made... More

We took a day tour to this delightful medieval town about 160 kms south of Prague. The town looks and feels as if it were stuck in a medieval time warp - the cobbled streets, the colors of houses. The same river that runs under the Charles Bridge, the Vltava, forms a horse-shoe bend around this town. It was a... More

I suggest visiting Schiele Art Center and of course all major attractions like the Castle and park with circulating theater.

Cesky Krumlov is a unique old town. The buildings have been wonderfully restored and it has a really interesting feel. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and recommend you spend at least 2 days exploring. Most of the castle rooms were closed but it didn't dampen our spirits as there was so much to see and explore. The Gingerbread shop... More

My best friend and I travelled to Cesky Krumlov using CK Shuttle. We were pretty surprised and relieved at the same time that we could find transportation service on New Years Eve and New Years Day. Our lovely driver, George picked us up from our hotel and he explained a little about the history of Cesky Krumlov and some questions... More

Its like going back in time, there is something special about being in an old European city with a castle and cobblestone roads.

On my sight too much tourists from morning till afternoon,and ,if you want to visit all museums and interesting places and taste excellent czech beer,you have to come twice. The first time at morning,and than , after 5 p.m - for restful walking inside fortress,under the canopy of centuries-old park near the ramparts or along the river

Narrow cobblestone streets. Shop lights glowing on the snow outside. A photo opportunity at every turn.
