It's one of the highlight of our Prague honeymoon trip, to spend time to wandering at the fairy tale township. Everything looks so beautiful, and romantic. Town is very small but we spent a good 2D1N here, enjoying evening walk, riverside dinner, romantic night view overlooking the castle.. <3

The historic center as well as the town is full of history and it will depend on the storyteller you may hear so many. The place is very charming and the people is very friendly.

A short walk thru the city of Český Krumlov will bring you to the 16th century and the atmosphere will be topped by the castle tour. It is a complex of renaissance buildings being together under UNESCO heritage programme.

This town is a delight. It is the type of place that you only plan a short stay at because it is small. And it's true that the town can be explored in a day. However it is one of the few places I regret not staying longer, to drink in the tranquility. The river is spellbinding and the beauty... More

Beautiful, unusual and picturesque town, well worth a visit. Castle is beautiful, gardens, bridges, parks and houses present lots of opportunities for great photos.

Charming, well-preserved Old Town (avoid new districts away from center.) Very compact, easily accessible by foot from one end to the other. Usual tourist shops, but some with a loopy Czech sense of humor---and not that many tourists, at least in October. Locals very friendly and helpful. CK lacks the cultural depth of Prague (no symphony, opera, etc.), but is... More

This is an attractive historic town, but it really feels like it's there for the tourist industry only. It was not too crowded when we were here (Oct) but I think in the summer it can get pretty crazy with tourists. I think next time I might look for more of a 'real' town.

Český Krumlov is one of the most beautiful, picturesque towns I've ever had the pleasure to visit. It really is like stepping into a fairy tale - cobbled streets, little stores, beautiful buildings & a gothic castle! Not to mention the spectacular view of the old town & river from the belltower! Do yourself a favour & visit this town!

Lose yourself in the little cobbled street of this unique piece of history, fortunately preserved over the centuries and now UNESCO protected. The township is a reflection into the past with its old houses, buildings, castle and beautiful winding river. A Free walking tour in English leaves the old square daily at 10.30am and was a great introduction to the... More
