At first I was a bit put off. When I got there they said I had to do a tour to see the two sections of the castle. Only one was given today. So I had to wait an hour for it to start. There...More

The castle is great, no doubt about it. Nevertheless, lorries driving, contractors working, movie being made in the castle rooms for some series, noise from many sources, but restaurants closed, parts of castle closed. Not a serene and quiet place. What was good and enjoyable...More

A picturesque castle nestled in a forest. Full of history, it dates to the 12th century. It is a beautiful and easy walk just reaching it, a lovely path through the gates and into the courtyard, surrounded by balconies. Only about an hour from Prague,...More

This castle is easy to visit in a day trip from Prague, although is not as easy to get to as Karlstejn. To get to Krivoklat, you take a train to Beroun and then switch trains for Krivoklat. The journey takes about one and a...More
