  • I love this place. It is so charming. I have been here already several times, but it never gets old. I hope that some parts will be renovated soon. In summer you can rent a canoe and paddle through the city... :)

  • Nice castle with guided tours in Czech and English. They say that there are bears living there. No sure if it is true. I have been there twice and didn't see one. The view to the castle is especially nice when you look at it from the terrace of some restaurant nearby while having a glass of wine.

  • Not as impressive as I hoped for without taking a tour. From October 31 on, there are almost no tours available, even though there are still thousands of visitors per day. From what you can see outside, a lot of the walls have been re-painted so it's not so much original. Still a great thing to see.

  • Beautiful place, make sure you get there early in the morning to avoid the crowds as it gets really busy in the afternoon. The view from the tower is breathtaking.

  • One of the most beautiful towns I've visited in Central and East Europe. The view of the little town is breathtaking, especially up from the castle tower.
