Full description
Join this full-day trip from Prague that features tours of the historic center of Česky Krumlov and its castle and museum. Visit a town that seems to have been lifted from a fairy tale. Česky Krumlov, located about 170 kilometers from Prague, is nestled in the beautiful countryside of southern Bohemia, with lovely views along the Vltava River. The UNESCO-listed town center features over 300 historic houses and the second-largest castle in the Czech Republic, complete with magnificent baroque gardens. Visit the unique theater with a rotating auditorium. Česky Krumlov has preserved its medieval atmosphere, as you’ll experience when you walk along the picturesque narrow streets, where you’ll find shops filled with handmade souvenirs. At one time, the castle was the seat of important noble families, including the Rosenbergs, Eggenbergs, and Schwarzenbergs. The oldest baroque theater in the world is part of the castle as well.

    Nice trip, too bad that in winter the castle is closed

    We booked this tour for February 13, aware that the castle would be closed. It was however a nice tour since the town is very picturesque and you can visit the castle exhibition and climb the tower where you can enjoy a beautiful view. The very knowledgeable guide spoke English and Italian. It would have been nice to have a little more time to visit the characteristic shops.

    Great trip, great guide, well organized

    The guide explained the history of Prague and Czech overall not only Cesky Krumlov, which was great, she was very enthusiastic, walked quickly, talked a lot (which I liked because she didn't waste time). Lunch choice was acceptable, I wouldn't say the food was good but the restaurant was nice with an amazing view from terrace and close to centre. The trip was well organized, they picked us up from the hotel exactly on time and dropped us off. Some people were late in the morning, the bus even started moving without them and they stopped it on the way. In general, we were very happy with the trip compared to the other walking tours and day trips we've taken, this one was a very good one. Shame the castle is closed in winter so we couldn't see inside

    The town of Cesky Krumlov was lovely. It was very touristy, but the castle, the architecture and charm of the town was well worth the visit. Our tour guide was more of a van driver who gave us a few facts but did not seem to be well versed in the history of the town and castle. I did like that it was a small group tour and not a large bus tour. Ample free time to explore on our own. Spent very nice day with Australian travelers.
