What You Can Expect

Cesky Krumlov Day Trip from Prague

View of Cesky Kromlov from River

The town's fairytale red-roofed castle is surrounded by landscaped gardens, and features grand courtyards, halls and furnishings. The castle's development over the 14th to 19th centuries has been well preserved, both in layout and architectural detail. The mighty castle complex stands on a rock promontory sculpted by the Vltava River, dominating the attractive medieval town below.

Together with the magnificent Church of St. Vitus, the castle is a unique feature of the entire region. The town of Cesky Krumlov is situated in a valley surrounded by the Blansko Forest to the north and the undulating foothills of Sumava to the south and west.

An absolutely wonderful experience. The guide gave us a quick overview of the castle and town, gave us time for lunch and shopping on our own, and directions to return for the castle tour. This was a very long day, but the bus rides came us a chance to see the countryside, relax, sleep, and talk to other people on the tour. The guide at the castle was terrific. The tour proceeded at a comfortable pace despite very steep inclines in some places.
