In the Czech Republic there are many castles, but Cesky Krumlov is my favourite one together with Hluboka. There is a lot to see inside the castle, paintings, beautiful salloons, it really has a history! Great atmosphere, interesting history, recommended!

This castle ranks up there with other famous names around Europe and is highly recommended. Best to arrive early to avoid crowds. We were lucky to be on an English language tour of six people! Much more intimate. The overall architecture and grounds, including the gardens, are full of surprises at every turn. Beautiful views of the town from above.... More

While not a huge castle, it is a very nice and quite interesting castle. There were a number of artifacts maintained in the castle that took up much time, not to mention a little theatre with a short, interesting film. Definitely climb the tower, the photos will be well worth it and don't forget to see the garden. Also, make... More

One of the largest castles in the Czech Republic and full of fantastic renaissance art. It was home to the wealthy bohemian Rosenberg & Schwarzenberg families. Hourly tours leave from the 3rd courtyard and start in the Chapel of St George. You continue on to the Rosenberg rooms with original renaissance wall paintings and wood panelling from the 16th C....

The tour inside the castle takes about an hour only. Why you must do it? - For the great views of the entire town from the top. You don't want to miss it. And this view is for free. You only pay to get inside the main complex. - The chapel inside the castle is really worth seeing - The... More

It's nice that you can walk around so much of the castle for free, including the gardens and across the spectacular bridge. We did only the theatre tour, but that was pretty mind-blowing. I'd really like to see a performance there using the original stage machinery, but that happens infrequently. We thought the bears were a bit sad, but lots... More

We noticed a theme in Central Europe....all castles are atop high hills. So wear comfortable shoes as this is no exception. But once you are up there, it is quite lovely and some of the best views of the town and valley below. Ww went up into the tower and climbed up to the top...again a great view. We also... More

We took a one day tour and it was really worthwhile. The town is beautiful and just relaxing walking around, taking photos and just enjoying the view. Beautiful castles and views.
