“Beautiful place, and not over-run with tourists”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

I was surprised at the dearth of tourists in this pretty town, especially after being in Prague. I was taking in the beautiful views at the castle tower for a good 15 minutes completely alone... it was lovely. Note that there is no elevator to the top -- they even have a little sign that tells you you are about to climb 206 steps :)

The baroque "Pleasure garden" is about a 10 minute walk from the palace (there is signage to direct you there -- look for "kvetna zahrada") and is definitely worth a visit. Make sure you don't miss the postcard views from the colonnade.

“Garden and Palace from the UNESCO list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2011

The Gardens and Palace are located in the middle of the town, very close to the marketplace. That’s a 15 minute walk from the railway station. The Palace is undoubtedly worth visiting – the furniture collection is very interesting, and some of the chambers are breathtaking, especially the old library. One can also visit the tower to enjoy a view of Kromeriz and the surrounding area. In the building there is an art gallery with a rich collection, but I myself didn’t have the time to make a visit (it is separated from the Palace museum). The garden is a great place to relax after wondering in the Palace, and it is also housing a small zoo, with birds of pray and baboons.
