I bought "maxiticket" which included the visit of the castle, tower, gallery and sala terrena (330,- CZK). You can visit the interiors of the castle and the sala terrena only with a guide. Climbing the tower is not difficult if you walk slowly. The stairs are comfortable, partly stone, partly wooden, spiral and straight. The view of the main square and the city is beautiful from the top. Sala terrena is a space under the castle. There are three interesting halls and two grottos. Takeing pictures in this part of the castle is alowed. The castle gallery contains 85 paintings from the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries. Among other things, you can see here the original painting of Titian (Tiziano Vecellio) "Apollo and Marsyas". The castle itself is beautiful. All the rooms are simply gorgeous. I really liked the library with four big globes. There are 91.000 books in 35 languages in the castle. The castle garden is huge. During stroll you can meet peacocks, there is a small animal corner with monkeys and many kinds of birds. The entrance to the garden is free.

"English tour" is in Czech language with you getting some badly translated texts to read by yourself. This was not mentioned when buying the tickets. Without any prior notice or sign or anything we were told we can't take pictures, but Czech people could take all the pictures they could take - what? They didn't put the lights on in most of the rooms. This place has a lot of potential, but the way it is run now, it is simply not acceptable.

Lovely building from outside and attractive renovated rooms. It is worth to climb the tower for best views of the old town.

A large and spacious park beside the Archbishop’s Palace, these gardens are beautiful to just rest and relax in. There are little lakes and watercourses, a tiny zoo of sorts and a farm for petting animals. Little kiosks serve refreshments near the palace. Statuary and little architectural follies are interspersed amid the trees and flowers of the large gardens. Perfect for a relaxing stroll in Kromeriz.

Weather was perfect, when we visited this place and weather component is important, since gardens are outside. If it would be cold and rainy, I would probably go just to palace. Palace is nice and it has a pretty view from the tower, but garden is beautiful and really big. It takes at least an hour to slowly walk through it. Next to the palace is also a park. If you have time, go and visit also the park.
