Cesky Krumlov State Castle, Cesky Krumlov Reviews

  • Beautiful castle with interesting history. I visited this castle based on a photo I came across years ago and the views on approach, inside the walls and from the tower are all splendid or beautiful in their own way. We budgeted half a day on this castle and it was just enough. There is a vast cultured garden with great sculptured fountain, and what I think is a hedge maze. And yes, there is a bear in the moat.

  • I think it's one of the most beautiful castles. The insides are magnificent. You get overwhelmed as soon as you enter the castle and the view from the top is even more astonishing. You see everything that's inside the city and everything that's happening in the city all it's people and house. It's a pleasure to live in this city alongside it's people.

  • A properly maintained medieval castle with a river flowing right through it. A nice lazy walk inside the castle and around the small town. Picturesque! Perfect for a day trip.

  • 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... :)

  • One of the most beautiful tourist attractions in the Czech republic. Well maintained castle, great view of the old historical traditional village and the around area. Usually too crowded, many groups are visiting the place but worth visiting.
