Cesky Krumlov State Castle Reviews & Ratings

  • Very well kept castle in a picturesque old town. Beautiful views of the old town from almost every part of the castle grounds. Was reasonably busy in March so must get overly busy towards the summer months. Everything seemed to be getting kept neat and tidy and well maintained.

  • Beautiful castle located in a lovely medieval-looking small town. I recommend coming during spring when it's not terribly crowded. Definitely recommend!

  • I really loved this place, you can just walk around the castle all day. The sunset near the gardens was beautiful casting warm light on the city below.

  • To visit the Castle and town is like taking a step back in time of at least a hundred years.The Soviet border was very close to the town, and locals tell of viewing the fences as like looking at the very edge of the known world !....so much for communism. Theres nothing not to like the locals love the tourists visiting, there no end of photo opportunities, restaurants and bars are plentiful and prices are about the lowest you will find in that part of the tourist world.

  • Great place for a weekend stay. Many activities, great for taking photos. Even better than the Prague Castle.
