Cesky Krumlov Castle

This sprawling 13th century castle (see photo) is on a hill looking almost directly down on the historic center. This palace citadel will likely exceed your expectations because there is far more inside than the outside suggests.

The complex consists of a connected series of castles and chateaus in a medley of Gothic, Baroque and especially Renaissance styles.

Guided tours take you through many ornately decorated rooms including the royal chapel and living quarters. You also visit a striking baroque theatre and masquerade ballroom.

Cesky Krumlov Old Town

It's small and intimate. You will love strolling down narrow cobblestone streets lined with picturesque venerable buildings. A peaceful river nearly completely encircles the site, creating a pleasingly snug setting.
