Worth a visit to Cesky Krumlov, a two and half hours drive from Prague. Czech Republic. The small historic town, it's gardens and especially the castle are awesome.

We took a day trip to this quaint castle town from Prague. It takes longer than one anticipates- we took extra long because there was an endless traffic jam on the route. Later on we were told it was one of the busiest days in the history of Cesky Krumlov. The place itself does not disappoint. It is a large... More

We stopped in Cesky Krumlov for an afternoon with our tour group on our way to Prague. We didn't known we were stopping there until we arrived. Our tour guide loves to take visitors to this UNESCO World Heritage Town. It became one of our favorite places we saw on our multi-country tour. It's postcard pretty and has an old... More

One looking for a quaint and beautifully preserved Old Town of Central Europe will surely find what's they looking for, hear in the delightful town of Cesky Krumlov. Situated nicely in a meander of Vltava River, it feels like a time warp. A lot of people talk about as a touristy place but I do not quite agree, since there... More

CK is a beautiful, well-revonated and preserved town-and-castle and well worth a visit. We would recommend staying the night there, if possible, to see it at times less thronged with tourists. Or go out of season?

From our Avalon River Boat berthed at Passau, it was about a 2 hour bus drive to this UNESCO World Heritage Town. But for me, it was just another medieval town which was a little neglected, and full of tourist shops. Had lunch at a cafe by the river, but didn't enjoy the food particularly, and didn't find the waitress... More

Generating a visit by car from Saltzburg to Prague, one passes right through this area. The castle here is a very impressive site and overlooks the entire village. Round Guard towers serve as Pensiones for tourists. If you remove the power lines and electric signs, you have a 15th century village. The castle has a Bibbienna Theatre inside it.

A wonderful day's excursion from our Danube-Rhine cruise on the Travelmarvel Jewel. The bus journey of about an hour from Aschach in Austria was time well spent to get to this picturesque town. Our guide was very knowledgeable and shared the history and tales of the lovely old buildings and the people that built them and lived here. He took... More
