Cesky Krumlov Castle, Cesky Krumlov

Dominating the surrounding city from its location on a high rock promontory, Cesky Krumlov Castle is a medieval complex of about 40 buildings, situated around five courtyards and a vast park. Dating back to the middle of the 13th century, the complex covers a total area of about 7 hectares (17 acres). The castle's atmospheric storerooms house a collection of stone statues and sacred art, accrued over the centuries by the city's many rulers. You can stroll through the grounds on your own, but access to some of the interior sections is by guided tour only. Check the website for opening hours and available tour options before you make the trip. A visit to Cesky Krumlov Castle represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Cesky Krumlov online attractions planner to plot your vacation.

    The castle is beautiful, it is also a nice view of the city. Beautifully maintained gardens. Unfortunately, we nevštívili it on Monday, when tours were (but even so there were lots of tourists), and we didn't see bears who were hiding. The revolving auditorium, which is banned, we have seen only from a distance. Beautiful is a walk around the Castle at night, when it is beautifully lit.

    A very interesting Castle, and what kinds of the city with him! The only minus-an incredible abundance of tourists in the summer. Come here after 6:00 pm, all the same beauty and a lot less people around.

    Very impressive castle in a beautiful setting. The numerous views of the old town from various vantage points are truly stunning. We went on the English Tour I. Our guide, Oli, was fantastic. She spoke in a loud clear voice, had a disarming sense of humor, and was very knowledgeable about the castle and it's history. She encouraged questions and was able to answer every one. This was one of the best tours I've ever been on.

    A picturesque UNESCO listed ancient town with great viewpoint from the tower. Such a beautiful place to visit. Nice hikes around the old town and the hills up to the castle. It was sunny in the afternoon we were there.

    The castle is stunning - from afar and up close. It's beautifully built and well-maintained and it's easy to see why it has become so popular. I have two concerns, though. The first is about the pricing - different parts of the castle are accessible with different guided tours. I feel like each one is too expensive but if you wanted to go on more than one it would be far too much. Secondly, the bears being kept captive in the moat seems really cruel and ruins the experience. I understand there is heritage to them being there, but I think it's time to accept that modern standards do not approve of this!
