Great setting, very photogenic. No English tours which is a shame. You can buy food and drink there and there is a reasonable amount of parking. It is not well sign posted so do your research

Castle Kost, Bone, is called after owners that are called Costi, but the word was changed and pronounced to suit Czechs to Kost. The castle is not too big, and has a parking area just outside the gate, outdoor courtyard, few shops, and outdoor seating for eating, and playing area with sandpit for kids. There is also a restaurant, bathrooms... More

If you're a castle entusiast this should be on your list. It is a above average castle which is very nice to look at. I would recommend walking the short tour around the castle, just to appreciate the beautiful nature and castle. The tour cost is about the same as every other castle and is worth the money if old...

20 minutes drive from Jicin great medival castle with organised trips to take you round most are in Czech but English available for a bit extra. Well worth visiting this impressive Castle with car parking just outside the walls and a couple of hotels for food and drink.

Amazing castle in the middle of the valley overlooking the surrounding Forest and a river. Suggested place to See in Boemia.

I've been here many times now. The castle is lovely, but the region (Cesky Raj) is superbe also and absolutely worth some time to walk in nature...

We did this tour and I was actually pleased I didn't speak Czech- the guide was so good with her torture description that a teenaged girl fainted!! I loved this castle, I felt like any minute the guards would arrive on their horses with swords in hand :) She showed us the whispering arch which actually blew my mind- you... More
