    The hsitoric Center ofCesky Krumlov is the perfect place to wander and discover something new at every corner. The side streets are narrow, the pavers are uneven and the people friendly at every turn…exactly how someone would image a 1000 year old village. There is so much character and charm throughout the village, it’s easy to get lost in your own thoughts…but not the village itself which is exceptionally small. Definitely a must see if visiting Prague or anywhere in the Czech republic.

    This was our first visit to Cesky Krumlov and I don’t think I was prepared for the sheer size and beauty of this castle. The castle is beautiful, both on the outside and on the inside (where we did a 1 hour tour in English). But it’s its commanding presence on the bluffs of the town that really captured my imagination. The walkway from the theater into the palace proper, with their views of the valley and the river below are spectacular. Definitely this is a must see if visiting Prague, or for that matter, any place in the Czech Republic.

    You have to visit this place when you have the chance. It’s lovely experience, you can walk through the whole house by yourself just with an audio guide. We paid a little extra money and enjoyed being actually photographed in the historic atelier and in the costumes. Definitely recommend that too. Big thank you to the people there, especially the young guy at the counter. He was really sweet and professional!

    Not surprisingly Cesky Krumlov has a church to St. Vitus (as I think nearly every town does). But this one has taken 500 years to build and really is exceptionally pretty on the inside. It appears gothic in style (like large central naive) but also has elements of other styles throughout the ages. It’s not exceptionally large and one can have a good viewing of the church in about 30 minutes, so it definitely is worth a peek in while in Cesky Krumlov.

    We started in central Cesky Krumlov and walked uphill to the train station. From there it’s a moderately uphill climb on an asphalt road to the trailhead at the end of the road. Fairly straightforward to follow the green/white markings. At the top you have obstructed views so you have to pay to go up the tower for the best views. About 6 miles to the top. We decided to continue on to Holubov from Klet. Follow the rough trail that goes under the chairlift until you reach an asphalt trail that takes you down into the valley. Continue until you arrive at Holubov and work your way to the train station. There are close by cafes to kill time as you wait for the train. Eventually, board train for trip back to Cesky Krumlov. A perfect day trip!

    The latran houses along the banks of the river in Cesky Krumlov are definitely worth a visit. Once factories, mills and houses for upclass nobles, they’re now boutique shops, restaurants and hotels….but they still have kept their overall charm. The streets are cobbled, the river is rushing past and even the old water wheel is turning. Definitely a fun way to enjoy the afternoon after a visit to the castle.

    It is right at the entrance of the city unless you come in behind and go straight to the castle from the marketplace. It is well built. You can rent kayaks just down beside the water.

    While the Upper Castle grounds are free to explore, you'll need to take a tour to access the interiors. Two different tour routes give you a glimpse of the places where the noble families such as Rozmberks, Eggenbergs, and Schwarzenbergs dined, studied, worked, prayed, entertained, and slept. You will promenade through a long series of elegant spaces and the sumptuous dining hall before enjoying the last stop - Ballroom of the Rosenbergs or Masquerade room - or Hall of Mirrors - the magic original painted ballroom. The brightly figures painted on the walls surround by the mirrors will seem lively and three-dimensional. The guide will tell how using mirrors, masquerade participants exchanged mysterious signs.

    Better choose Tour 1 (Gothic and Renaissance rooms, of the most general interest). Open Tue- Sun 9 am - 16 pm. Smart take a ticket as early morning as you can and then build your castle visit around your tour time (you'll be issued a ticket with your tour time printed on it). Ticket price around 13.50 dollars, tour duration 55 minutes. Be in the correct courtyard at that time, or you'll be locked out.

    This beautiful monestry is open to the public and well worth a visit. Another bonus about this place is it is at the bottom of the hill so you don’t need to climb miles like the castle which is also worth it by the way.

    This is a Centre for culture and arts and it is an oasis of calm in the town. Dive of the tourist packed streets into the Gardens of this place and you will have peace and quiet along with beautiful views and photo opportunities

    Stopped in for a few beers and felt transported back in time. Lovely old building, great ambiance, nice beer selection, and, a mandatory stop when in the village.

    The church itself was converted into apartments a very long time ago, however the tower can still be accessed by the public and gives some impressive views of the city.

    When you visit this town be prepared to do plenty of walking. To visit the castle you need to be quite fit as it is a long climb but amazing when you get there.

    The beauty of the square is it it is a place you can recharge and rest your legs for a while. Surrounded by beautiful buildings which house restaurants, small shops and cafés you can get some food and drink to provide sustenance.

    It is beautifully maintained and provides some great photo opportunities. You can also get tourist information there.

    You can't miss this tower as you can see it clearly due to its colours. The views of the town was great from the top of the tower.
