What travelers are saying
- 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.Written November 11, 2022
- 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.Written November 11, 2022
- 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!Written July 9, 2022
- 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.Written November 11, 2022
- We went to Cesky Krumlov for the day with a private guide who actually took us into the town via “the back door”….through the Castle Gardens. What a wonderful way to start our visit. Despite the terrible drought, the gardens were lush, flowering and full of color. The fountains were all blasting away and the breeze through the trees was delightful. When we exited, we obviously walked back through the garden, which offered up a second opportunity to take in their beauty before getting on the road for a drive back to Prague. (Also, there was no parking problems and little to no traffic…brilliant!!). Definitely enjoyed the gardens and would visit them again if the opportunity presented itself.Written November 11, 2022
- 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!Written August 15, 2022
- 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.Written November 11, 2022
- as you walk along this medieval town you will get to admire all the different types of old anciet looking house and museum.Written February 26, 2020
- 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.Written August 7, 2022
- 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 opportunitiesWritten June 1, 2022
- 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.Written November 30, 2021
- 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.Written March 29, 2022
