Smell of history
Jul 2020 • Family
Next stop on our trip was old castle Zvikov, above junction of rivers Vltava and Otava. In these days mighty cliff where castle was built, is gone, under the waters od Orlík dam. But history still breathes here.

First time in my life - just stunning
Oct 2018 • Couples
We made a jump on the way from South Bohemia back to Prague, just 30 minutes from Hluboka. Late october with colorfull trees, confluence of Vltava and Otava rivers and the medieval castle. It was an overvelming atmosphere.

Arrive by boat.
Sep 2017 • Couples
We didnt actually do this as we were on a bike ride but it is possible and will be a great boat trip. In a really scenic location on a lake with great views on all sides. You can go into the castle but we arrived late in the afternoon and it was closing. Large car park with a bar/ restaurant. Well worth a visit in all weathers.

Beautiful in the Fall
Oct 2016 • Friends
The castle was beautiful. My husband and I went with a group on a ghost tour trip. Fall colors were all around and the castle was pretty with a good amount of the original paintings on the inside. A wedding was taking part that day also. The oldest part of the castle is supposed to be haunted. People who go to that part specifically find their camera batteries dying suddenly,for no reason, including me.

One of the best castles in Czechia
Aug 2016 • Couples
Castle is located in romantic peak above the junction of two rivers, Vltava and Otava. You can see the style of fortification, protection of castles in medieval times. It's located in the original Celtic settlement, they say the place is magical and mysterious. It's really amazing place.
I recomend to save whole day for this visit and take a boat (just under the castle) and enjoy the river ride to other famous castle, Orlík, look around there and then take boat back to Zvíkov. Each trip takes 45mins, return ticket costs 240CZK for adult (cheaper tickets for children). The river is really magnificant and it's great experience.
But even if you have just a little time and you go around, don't miss to visit this place.

Amazing view and castle
Aug 2015 • Friends
Překvapivě velký hrad s prohlídkou bez průvodce. Romantické místo, které stojí za návštěvu!

The castle is placed on the conflunce of rivers Vltava and Otava. There is an amazing view. We were surprised how large the castle is; tour is not conducted and price reasonable.

Lovely place to go
Jun 2015 • Family
If you are ever nearby, do yourself a favor and visit Zvikov castle. A place where true fairytales may born.
Lovely medieval castle on a river shore, offers splendid views of nature and castle itself. Also they offer to explore the castle exposition on your own - I like that as I do not want to stick to the group, listen to never ending data and etc. I loved to wander the castle in quiet and peace (never mind my 2 year old daughter).
Great experience and highly recommended.

Nature wonder with historic touch
Jun 2014 • Family
Fantastic place on the conjunction of 2 rivers. Just beautiful nature makes this place worth visit. And on top you get the castle surrounded by water and gorgeous views from the walls.
There are boat trips offered inside the castle. This will make your day complete
If you plan to have a meal there is a good restaurant with free parking. Not cheap but tasty. Plus own brewery will offer you variety of beers, even including ale and stout
Beautiful one day trip
