Amazing olde worlde charm.

Each street led to another amazing building, river, castle, just a fantastic place. Unfortunately the weather wasn't the best so we'd love to go back for another visit some day.

The town is the best over night. Mysterious and tiny streets are magical. Off season means no tourists! It has a real medieval feeling. Even our kids loved it!

Are you a medieval town/city buff? If you are try to find your way to Cesky Krumlov in the south Bohemian region of the Czech Republic, a fairly short drive from Passou. Because it was hidden away behind the iron curtain for years, it fell into disrepair, but has been renovated and repainted almost completely. Cesky Krumlov sits on a... More

Cesky Krumlov is a small medieval town offering unique architecture, cobbled streets with many small souvenir shops and a fairytale castle with amazing view! There are lots of restaurants offering traditional Czech dishes and a great Italian restaurant as an alternative. I highly recommend it for a day trip, as it is about 2-3 hours drive from Prague (student agency... More

Cesky Krumlov is a town straight out of a fairytale! Especially when a light dusting of snow covers the orange rooftops... Absolutely stunning! The historic centre is full of souvenir shops, selling beautiful Czech items. I visited in late February so escaped the crowds and experienced the town in a less 'touristy' fashion. Well worth a day trip from Prague... More

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
