Cesky Krumlov State Castle, Cesky Krumlov Reviews

  • The Castle is very interesting with almost all of the wall being painted. The tour was good with a friendly tour guide. This was the best castle tour that I have been on. All of the rooms are well presented and they look amazing. Also in case it is a hot day the insides of the castle seem to always be cool so it was a nice break from the heat

  • Fantastic and should be must in your visiting schedule.. Most happening place. Lot many local eateries. Authentic local taste. Tourist souvenir are available.

  • Really nice place. If you go there make sure you get up the tower and then visit the baroque theatre. The baroque theatre is supposed to be one of the biggest surviving one. The garden is really nice and the rotation outdoor theatre is definately fascinating (though I would understand why UNESCO would want to remove it... Definately should try a show before they remove it...) Visiting at night is also really great. You can enter the castle but the tower the museum and the garden are closed. It becomes very calm at night without the tourists and is very picturesque. We had a guide who took is there. It was really nice.

  • Great castle/palace 🏰 with a partly gothic style tower to fall in love with. Lots to see inside and peaceful too. Everything you need reasonably nearby too. Guided tours available if you want that. Beautiful views of the town/village down below.

  • Small but pretty town with long history of royal families. Castle , which was later rebuilded to palace , is on perfect spot surrounded by beautiful nature. Town itself is tiny, well placed on river. Plenty of parking places available.
