We had a private day tour and wanted to see this castle. When we got there (mid-day), there were no more tours in English, so we took a tour in Czech and were given a 3 page handout, in English, that pretty much was what the guide said along the tour. It was very easy to follow as we went.... More

I visited Krivoklat castle today, and I didn't see where to buy tickets and the last tour runs an hour before the castle closes, which this time of year is 15:00, so last tour was just after I got there. The tour guide said the tour was also over full, there must have been 40 people in that last tour.... More

The entire city is like something from the middle ages. Really enjoyable city to stroll around, relax and maybe have a beer or two at one of the bars.

Everything, the castle, country site,guides, the only thing I didn't like is parking, very limited and long walk to the castle.

the castle is worth seeing in better season: it has been too cold today. Still the way there / from Prague is very picturesque and the road is good. Beautiful views from the castle

This castle is definitely worth a visit. It is less well known and smaller than some of the others but has as much history and probably more charm. We took the guided tour and it was worth it. Although the tour was not in english we were given a detailed sheet and keepsake map/folder, so the tour was easy to... More

We visited Krivoklat in winter during Christmas period a were amazed by the atmosphere and coziness of this place. Less than 2 hours by train from Prague we tound a quiet place to spend the day. The castle hosted a few film-maker crew and served as the venue of q few Czech films and fairy tales. The guide took us... More

We came during the winter when it was snowing. Grand Krivoklat Castle has a beautiful entrance and seeing the balcony upon entering the courtyard remind me of a scene from Romeo and Juliet. It's a small castle but still unique.

This is a nice small castle less than an hour away from Prague. Compared to Karlstejn, it's much quieter around here and you have more time to take in the atmosphere of the castle. And the local restaurant serves tradiitional food.
