Não deixe de visitar o Castelo Hluboká, considerado um dos mais belos castelos da República Tcheca.
Cesky Krumlov is nice and beautiful. However, most people take this trip as a day tour. Of the 9 people that went with me from Prague, I was the only person left behind at Hluboka in Hotel Stekl. There is no program on Day 2. I am to wait till 5pm for this next day's day tour guests to finish the same 1 day tour and travel back to Prague along with them.
As a solo traveller, I didn't enjoy the hotel at all. I was given a room at the attic, and I was the only occupant on that floor. I asked for a different room to be placed near to other people there were only very few other guests at the hotel to begin with, but not granted. The corridor leading to the room only gets lit up when the sensor detects a movement along the corridor so it's pitch dark when u exit the lift or from the room. The room itself is also poorly lit. I was a little spooked out being in the hotel. Decided to book a taxi on my own and left that very night without staying and went back to Prague. I would suggest to book this tour as a day trip, unless you like to stay in a very quiet hotel converted from the annexes of an old castle.
This was an amazing experience. The stay is Stekl Hotel, which is within the Hluboka Castle tour was an unforgettably romantic experience. Even though the castles are closed during the month on March, there are short tours available for one wing of the Hluboka Castle and there is a museum within the Cesky Krumlov castle. In the morning one can wake up early and walk around Hluboka Castle in complete solitude! Cesky Krumlov is a beautiful historic town and well worth going to. I would also recommend the little shop on Dlouha street which sells genuine hand made souvenirs made by Czech artists. The tour guide, Petr, was first class. His knowledge is exceptional, he is happy to answer any questions and is very flexible and knows all the special places. You can trust his recommendations as he has over 20 years of experience. He made sure I made the maximum opportunity during my stay there. The tour will run even if you are the only booker, which was my case, and it was a fantastic experience. Highly recommended, I cannot praise it enough - any time of the year. Will be less tourists around in the winter months. The South Bohemian countryside is gorgeous.
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.
