What You Can Expect

2-Day Hluboka and Cesky Krumlov Tour from Prague

Enjoy an Excursion to Cesky Krumlov during your Trip to Hluboka

You’ll spend the first day with your guide, who’ll take you to the region’s sights and provide commentary. On your second day, enjoy the flexibility to create your own itinerary in Hluboká nad Vltavou and sightsee at your own pace.

Day 1: Prague — České Budějovice — Cesky Krumlov — Hluboká nad Vltavou (L)
You’ll be picked up from your Prague hotel or a central meeting point in the morning. Your journey begins by traveling through the peaceful countryside of South Bohemia to České Budějovice, the region’s largest city. See the imposing Black Tower and the town’s historic square is lined with Renaissance and Baroque-style houses.

Continue south to the small city of Cesky Krumlov, picturesquely situated above a meandering valley along the upper Vltava River. More than 300 historic buildings, the dominating Cesky Krumlov Castle and the Church of St Vitus bear witness to the city’s rich past. Visit the castle with your guide and explore the UNESCO World Heritage-listed old town, Old Cesky Krumlov, where you’ll have lunch at a local restaurant with your group.

Then make your way to the town of Hluboká nad Vltavou. Check in to your 4-star castle hotel for your overnight stay.

Overnight: 4-star Stekl Hotel in Hluboká nad Vltavou

Day 2: Hluboká nad Vltavou — Prague (B)
Enjoy breakfast at your hotel before spending the second day at your leisure. You can create your own itinerary today, with recommendations from your guide.

Consider walking through town and visiting the Ohrada Hunting Lodge or the Ohrada Zoo, playing golf at the sports complex, or going biking around town. Be sure to visit Hluboká Castle, a striking 13th-century castle that is considered one of the most beautiful in the country. It has undergone many renovations: first a Gothic castle, it was expanded during the Renaissance period and then rebuilt into a Baroque castle in the early 1700s. It reached its current appearance in the 19th century when Johann Adolf II von Schwarzenberg ordered its reconstruction in the romantic style of Windsor Castle.

In the evening, head back to the hotel to board the coach and journey back to Prague.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2014

Hluboka is well worth seeing and Cesky Krumlov was a great stop too. The hotel accommodations were first rate.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Crumlov and Hluboka were great. Must visit for everyone. Overnight stay near the castle Hluboka was a surprise for us as we did not expect it.
About our guide: he was very strange and boring. I think he works as guide too many years and he don't like to do what he is doing. Almost zero comments on the 2.5 hours way to Krumlov and on the way back to Prague. We expected to hear something on this long trip. Probably audio guide would be great to have if driver (guide) is too busy driving.

4 star rating: Recommended November 2014

Cesky Krumlov was great, guide pretty boring and uninterested in the whole thing. Hluboka was very interesting. Overall I'm glad I did the tour..
