This is a hidden jewel a little off the beaten path. You must find some time to walk the fort, enjoy the peaceful setting on the river and see the shops.
Visiting the UNESCO-listed town of Cesky Krumlov from Prague on your own means hiring a car or juggling trains or buses. Save yourself the hassle on this full-day tour, which includes comfortable coach transport and the opportunity to see all the highlights. Enjoy admission to Cesky Krumlov Castle (April-October), a visit to Church of St. Vitus, a guided walk in the medieval old town, and an included lunch (November-March only).
After morning pickup in central Prague, relax in a comfortable, air-conditioned coach and admire South Bohemia’s countryside as you journey to Cesky Krumlov.
On arrival in this UNESCO-protected town, head for its showpiece: 13th-century Cesky Krumlov Castle. On a rocky outcrop carved by the Vltava river, this picture-book fortress commands sweeping views of the old, red-roofed town below.
Explore the rich interiors (April-October) as your guide charts the castle's history, or enjoy an included lunch in the town in winter (November-March).
Take a guided stroll in the old town and enjoy the opportunity to view Church of St. Vitus, another of Cesky’s landmarks and home to a stunning baroque altar.
Finally, use your ample free time to delve into the town as you wish: perhaps people-watching from a sidewalk cafe and shopping for souvenirs. Your trip ends with a drop-off in central Prague.
