The town is split in two, high and low, both of which need to be checked out. Such a beautiful scene from the palace grounds down to the stream below, and yet a such quaint, idyllic European village. A Must-see if you're in Southern Czech Republic, or Czech at all.

Cesky Krumlov it a very nice town, we love it. It has a great view from the castle and a lot of restaurants. souvenirs shops and cafes. The streets are narrow and there are a lot of places where you can take some really nice photos. It's a town that you have to visit if in the area.

We have been to lots of similar places, but Cesky Krumlov is very special. It has a wonderful setting with the castle overlooking the town. There are some nice restaurants and beautiful buildings. The people are friendly. Even though it is cold in December when we are there, it is a stunning place.

This place is very cool - the whole feel of the place seems like medieval.... I really enjoyed the castle and the way the river snakes through town

I instantly fell in love with this small historical town. The buildings are lovely, the streets are narrow and there are a lot of places from where you have a really nice panorama, either of the castle or of the whole town. It is quite easy to get from one place to another and unlikely to get lost. You will... More

This was one of the highlights of my trip even though the castle was closed. The town is charming with a lot of ghost stories about various buildings and families. Worth taking either the walking tour or the audioguide tour leaving from the TI in the old town square.

Cesky Krumlov is gorgeous. I couldn't stop taking photos of its uniquely painted castle tower. Don't forget to walk uphill towards the bear moat and on to the park beyond it. You'll see additional attractive sites and get spectacular views of the town from up there. To get to Cesky Krumlov from Prague, the Student Agency bus line offers a... More
