The castle park is pleasant walk for a couple, family or just with friends. What you should not miss is the "Oh My Deer Cafe" at the central forecourt. The outstanding customer service and products will make plesant ending of your walk and will encourage you to return for a great coffee or cake again.

You can feed small deers in the park of this castle. They are cute, funny and very adorable. Amazing experience

Been to the Zamek Blatna several times and enjoy taking grand kids there. Very nice grounds with water. Animals to feed inside. Some kind of deer. Peacocks and other birds on the grounds. Carp in the water. Be sure to bring dried bread or other food for the deer and carp. 25 Kron to enter and you need the coin or can purchase a entry paper to put in the new machine. They have somone on duty if you have any problems. Nice walking trail either short or long. Not a lot to see in the castle but enjoyable. They have a restaurant on premises. WC available. Parking off street.

It was very nice visit, the town is small with nice atmosphere.
In the castle you may feed the fallow deer, and see nice peacocks.
The shame was that the church was closed, so it was not possible to have a look inside.
There are also nice restaurants and sweet shops in the town.

I did not know about this castle until I watched a Czech princess story and was intrigued by the scenery. The trip is 1.5 hrs by car from Prague and goes by fast as the roads are in good shape. I arrived in the main square where I parked the car and on Sunday's parking is free BONUS. I honestly walked about 5 min and was in front of the castle. In terms of the tour, the guide was very good (all done in Czech, not sure if they offer a tour in English). Entry fee was 100kc and the entire visit is done in 1 hr. In terms of the caste itself, it is not that special, but the surroundings make it worth the trip. Even if you skipped the castle, the rest alone is worth seeing.

You can buy deer feed at the main desk where you buy your ticket and then a few steps and a large wooden gate later, you are in a middle of a massive park with deer running around everywhere. The castle guide told me that right now there are about 63 of them on site.

They are FRIENDLY and I mean FRIENDLY. I bought 2 bags of feed and honestly it could have been gone in like a min if I did not pace them. They come up if groups of 3, keep sneezing at you and making noises to give them food.. and in some cases poke you with their nose.. amazing. They were all young I think as their antlers were soft like velvet.

Once you are done with feeding, you can walk past a big white house on the premisses where the current descendent of the royalty still lives. There are peacocks that hang out on the roof tops and spread their feathers for all to see. There is a gorgeous white one that was my favourite.

This is a great day trip from Prague for a change of scenery and nature if you can get away.

A really wonderful castle to visit, only an hour outside of Prague, with activities suitable for all family members. Among other things are guided tours of the premises, a coffe break at the little café or deer patting in the park things that you can enjoy here. Definitely worth a visit!

After a tiring day in Prague, our friends took us to this magical place. The castle is beautiful on the outside, we did not have a chance to see it from inside, as arrived after 17H on a Saturday. The grounds are very green and numerous peacocks and deer are the hosts of the woods. You can feed them with seeds or vegetables. They are very friendly and noble.

The Czech Republic is a beautiful country with a lot to see outside of Prague. Blatna is a nice small city in Southern Czech Republic about 2 hours outside of Prague. The town has a Castle with a moat from 1235. The grounds make for a nice walk with many deer you can feed. Peacocks roam free as well. The town of Blatna has many sidewalk cafe's with good beer and food. Very friendly atmosphere and the Castle itself has much history and is very interesting to visit. You can ride a horse around the grounds or take a carraige ride. You can also rent a row boat to row around the Castle.No charge for visiting the Castle.

Water castle Blatna offers a guided walk aiming at children, guided night tours, excellent walks in the park with feeding fallow-deers and boating. There is also an interesting exhibition of castle paper models that is well worth it. You can buy some 3D models for smaller kids and adults there.
There is a friendly cafe in the courtyard with surprisingly wide assortment of food and drink, ice creams and delicious coffee.
Castle is being repaired and only a part is accessible but a tour with a walk around the grounds makes a nice half a day trip.
