  • My wife and I were in Krumlov. Never seen anything like it! The city preserved intact since its foundation. This picturesque castle that the sensation of total immersion in the story. The Castle walk costumed procession. You can take a picture with a medieval nobleman or noble in luxurious dress. Parts of clothes made very accurately. Sometimes lost the sense of reality.

  • Beautiful castle with great view of the city. Access to the different castle areas is restricted and priced. There is a museum, and a few tours of the different castle areas. Recommend the castle tour is very interesting and informative.
  • Unbelievable scenery outside and inside of this Baroque castle, and the atmosphere is always festive. Don't forget to bring your camera and wear good walking shoes.
