When we arrived by coach at Cesky Krumlov, I felt like a little girl again! I felt as if i had walked into a fairytale book. The narrow and winding streets, the wooden bridges, the toppling houses and wooden decorations make this little town a fantasy place. Although there are many tourists, yet one feels on a voyage down in... More

My wife and I were here for the first time, and it lived up to expectations. It really is a miniature Prague, with a lovely old town in a bend of the river and a castle towering on the opposite bank. I have rarely seen such au unspoilt collection of medieval buildings, uninterrupted by modern abominations as is the case... More

Cesky Krumlov is a beautiful, postcard-perfect looking town. I stopped here for a day while travelling from Prague to Salzburg. Spending one night here is more than enough. It's a small town and easy to get around. It's a bit of a tourist trap but it's still one of my favorite cities in Europe.

There is a wide range of restaurants suited for all types of budget. Lots of cobble paths, can we quite congested in some areas but there is always somewhere peaceful to go and something to see. Very nice atmosphere in the evening with live bands.

Like another reviewer said, I really wanted to love this town. It was a long drive from Prague, but I was riding on an air conditioned bus, not driving it, so that wasn't the problem. It was a hot day ... but not as hot as in Prague, and anyone who lets the weather affect their mood really shouldn't be... More

You can visit Cesky Krumlov with Martin Tours from Prague. You leave at 9am from the Old Town Square, it costs 1600 Czk and you are back by 7pm. The view on arrival is picture perfect. From the high vantage point you can see the Vltava River curving around the town below with the colourful castle tower in the middle,... More

This town is picture perfect, as advertised. But, there is nothing really THERE. The town is mostly tourists, without an especially friendly vibe from the townspeople. There are no historical markers - nothing about what happened in WW2 (look on Wkipedia re history of Jews - no memorials in town). The shopping, pencil store excepted, is mediocre. As one of... More

There's lots to do in CK, it's true, and it's a very pretty place with an amazing castle. It's now very much a tourist town, though, and some might prefer to enjoy it in the morning and evening when it's not quite so frantic. It holds its own, though, with plenty of high quality shops and experiences. I'm glad I... More

I came here on a day trip from Prague. It has adorable cobble stone streets, cute little shops and beautiful buildings. The castle is a must, very interesting.
