This church is not very big, but it has a nice setting up a bit from the street and is nice inside. You should definitely spend a bit of time in here if you visit Cesky Krumlov.

St Vitus church is small and does not offer much to see. It is in the large public square so take a few minutes and see for yourself

The Church of St. Vitus is open daily and admission is free. Cannot remember the hours, but we went during the day. Takes about 15- 20 minutes to view.

We were not subjected to a fee, but I believe I left a donation as I was leaving the church. It was a donation, not a mandatory fee.

I have a tentative itinerary below. Was wondering if there's anything else a must do that I should include or delete? It's an adult group 50+ yrs old. I was informed that the Karlstejn castle is closed on Monday when I have it scheduled. Should I move it to an open afternoon, or is that too many castles to view and do something else like the Bohemian Glass factory or Terezin Memorial or something else? Thank you! Itinerary: Transfer to our hotel and enjoy the remainder of the day at...More

It looks good. I`d take the castle over the glass factory but that`s a matter of personal taste. The morning schedule is ok. You have a lot of free time in the afternoon though. There are some interesting places you`ve left out of your plan for example Vysehrad but considering that it gets dark early i don`t know if i`d be a good idea to go there in the afternoon
