    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.

    Cute (and free) little museum, showcasing some of the history of the region via its commercial products, more or less. There's actually quite a number of items, and the placards explaining the item collections are written in a few languages (including English). There's also a little gift shop section near the entrance/exit if you want to buy some replicas of old timey things.

    We just loved it: a unique story of the moldavite mineral told in a modern and enjoyable exposition. We learned a lot, relaxed gazing at the green magical stones and had a lot of fun with the simulator and the kids game.

    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.

    It is a must see if you want to know more about the history of this city. It covers all periods of history since stone age.

    We had some time to kill in town and decided to check this little museum out. It's really more someone's private collection of puppets than a museum per se, but an interesting way to spend some time. Warning, LOTS of steep steps. Quite a variety of puppets of all sizes. Very inexpensive.

    Very interesting museum. It had quite a few wax figures which was nice to see. It was a mix of Czech figures and international ones. I like the part where they showed how people looked like in the old days and drank in the pub or worked in the mines. The wax figues were looked very realistic which spooked me out a few times.
    It was a short exhibition though, which we finished looking through very quick.

    En route to the castle we saw a sign for an “underground city.” Naturally we had to detour. It was actually an exhibit for a single, very angsty artist, Miroslav Pirál, who specialized in bronze sculptures. The creepy setting was perfect for his morbid art. But the descriptions, thankfully available in English, were very clear and meaningful. He spoke of learning about “empty suitcases” left behind from murdered Jews, of how Czech people turned inward to their TV’s, alcohol, and cabins in the woods to deny to themselves the oppression of Soviet rule. And he shared about the horrors of free reign, post-Communism including the advancement of the sex industry and loss of job security – among other things – when the Soviets left. It was truly moving.

    This wasn’t the most friendly tourist information centre I’ve ever been to but it did its job.

    My advice is to go there before you start to climb up to the castle and so on so you can get the necessary information and understand the history more before you make the climb.

    The office is set on the main square and tucked away in the left-hand corner. It is a great facility with all the information you need to make your visit here worthwhile and meaningful.

    The Baroque Theatre is amazing; definitely a must see in Cesky Krumlov. After touring it, we were so impressed that we made a second trip back to Cesky Krumlov two months later to see a performance in the theatre. After the performance, we were able to linger, enjoy the building and nobody rushed us out. Wonderful experience.
