What travelers are saying
- The 220 steps I climbed non-stop made me feel young on the day I turned 80. Try it oldies, it helps.Written August 18, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- I suspect if you’re visiting this brewery that you already know a thing or two about beer. No matter, it was informative nonetheless and fun. You cannot argue with the epic unfiltered beer you get to drink in the cellar. There was no rushing us as we watched the bottling procedure perhaps longer than normal.
If you’re lucky, like us, you and some new friends from the tour can try more of their beer at the attached restaurant.
Sorry, not sorry…but this beer is the TRUE BudweiserWritten September 8, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This is a great town square, it's within walking distance to great restaurants, parks, the winter stadium with ice-skating as well as a ten-minute walk to a mall with cinema's etc...
You won't find McDonalds or KFC here, they're also walking distance if you need them, rather this square remains a very authentic Czech hub, which is widely utilised by the locals and not as much of a theme park as many other city centres.
There are regular markets held in and around the square and they have a fantastic Christmas market too.
If you're with children, there is a great large play area in the park, less than 5 minutes walk away, next to an indoor and outdoor swimming pool with water slides etc... for the summer.
There are outdoor movie theatres, the planetarium and of course pubs with beer gardens, serving local and international cuisine and loads of Czech beers.
Language can sometimes be a challenge for more complicated conversations, but I find that most Czechs in the hospitality industry will understand food and drink orders and the younger the person, the more likely they are to have a good grasp of English as there are now a whole host of English Language schools in the area.
Overall the City and the Square are off the main tourist routes, but all the more authentic for that.Written April 14, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Set right in the centre of the main square this is a fabulous Fountain. It is ornate, absolutely beautiful and a real focal point for the town.
We spent hours on end wandering around the area so occasionally needed somewhere to sit down.
This provided the perfect solution and the breeze was even blowing a spray of cold water on as which was much appreciated!
It’s great just to sit there for awhile and watch the world go bye on this beautiful Square. Close to bars and restaurants and shops as well.Written June 4, 2022
- We visited the village on Dec.31 at evening time, when all the buildings had some light on it. Some windows had light inside and it is to show that people live there and use the buildings. But for sure in daytime you will be able to see more and it will be our task in trips in future.
The road to the village is narrow, but good!Written March 6, 2020
- This marvellous building dominates what is a beautiful square anyway. It is full of life and incredible architecture but this takes pride of place.
It is imposing and beautifully decorated outside. You can’t miss it as it is right on the main square and surrounded by great bars and restaurants.
In a town full of stunning beauty this is the jewel in the crown in my opinion.Written June 4, 2022
- Gorgeous gold colored three story building located on the corner of the main square and Karel IV street. Built for a Germain financial firm Biene, in translation a bee, the decorations of bee (3rd floor) and bee hive (1st floor) symbolize thrift and economy.Written August 30, 2018
- An interesting mix of the old and the very new make for something of a surprise when you step inside the Church just a very short distance from the principal square of Ceske Budejovice.Written August 7, 2019
- We went with the kids on a rainy day but it was a couple of hours well-spent. Wide range of exhibits, including a number of interactive ones which the kids (and adults) enjoyed. It gives a better idea of a historic provincial town but also a range of other cultural and natural life exhibits.
Ceske B in general is a lovely old town and well-worth a stopover.Written August 13, 2020
- It was interesting to learn, that the salt in the middle age was coming from Austria to Ceske Budejovice, and was distributed from here i.e. to Prague. The Solnice was the house for salt.Written July 17, 2017
- This square is really charming. I definitely recommend going to the church with the monastery. You can even use the toilets there which are reconstructed and clean unlike the public WC in the city.Written July 31, 2017
- This street close to the main square features houses that are similar in architectural style and painted nice colours. The house date back 300 or so years and it makes for a nice walk while in Ceske Budejovice.Written August 4, 2019
- a charming young lady showed us the telescope even though we had not booked and had arrived midday which is an odd time to visit.
We enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to all agesWritten September 10, 2017
- The museum is one of the hundreds of exhibited motorcycles with one of the largest publicly accessible collections of two-wheeled vehicles in the Czech Republic. I'm not a motorbike fan but my boyfriend was impressed by the old bikes. It will take about 15 min to see the whole museum but the entrance fee was about 2 EUR so it was worth it.Written September 9, 2017
- Especially in hot summer this place offers really cool environment. There is the largest fresco of Saint Christopher in Europe. On the outside wall of the church, look for the statue of a frog climbing up the wall - the legend says when it reaches the roof it will be the end of the world. Now there is a reconstruction of the fasade happening so you cannot see the frog, but you can still visit the monastery.Written August 14, 2019
