Getting to Cesky Krumlov

by zweisvet

Hi all!!!

I will be going from Vienna to Prague. I hope to break my journey at Cesky Krumlov. Should one spend a day here and then proceed to Prague on the same day? or stay over and then go ahead? And if one does stay only ffor a day, what all can one do?

Looking forward to your responses!

Thanks a tonne!

CK is a fairy tale gem and so deserves at least spending a night. You might check to see if the castle is open the day you go because it is a treat, well maintained and furnished. It is a small place but we spent three nights there and didn't get
bored, not because there was so much to do, but it was just so enjoyable to be there. I don't know if you are driving or taking the train, but getting there by train may not be very convenient and time consuming from Vienna. We used www.mike-chauffeur.cz to take us from CK down to Passau because it was going to require too much time and too many changes on the train.

I agree with violetduck - both about transportation and that you can definitely find things to do in Krumlov. Definitely figure out your transportation first b/c it might not be available when you would like. If you haven't come across it yet, here's a site with all Czech public transportation: http://jizdnirady.idnes.cz/JRCis.asp?tt=c&p=MF&cl=E5 - its in english and german as well as czech. The long train ride in itself could be a bit of an adventure....

Cesky Krumlov is worth at least a couple of days. There are many pensions that are right in the old town so you should easily find a place to stay. Trains and buses are not that convenient to the old town, drop you off a mile or two away, but you can easily get there by local bus or taxi. Presumably the tourist info office on the two square can find a place for you or you can just pop into any one of the many pensions that you will pass as you walk through town. Make sure to buy you castle tour as soon as you get there. Often, you have to buy them one or even two days prior to getting in and it's definitely worth it.
The old town walking tour that I got from TI was very enjoyable but I would skip the brewery tour. There is one restaurant that I highly recommend. It is right on the river downstream from the bridge that is just below the castle linking the town to the castle area and they serve medieval meals in a glorious setting.
I highly doubt you'll be sorry if you extend your stay in Krumlov beyond just the day.
Enjoy!

Travel Tips for Cesky Krumlov

Sgraffito everywhere!

by Roeffie

Well it isn't much of a local custom tip. But it is at least very common in Cesky Krumlov and in the Czech Republic.

A lot of the buildings are painted with sgraffito. You think to see some stones, but it's all painted on the building.

Great example of Craftmansship!

the summer-castle

by globetrott

The small summer-castle is used as a scenery for the plays only now, and may not be visited. But it looks nice, and you may imagine, it once was a great place to relax from the everyday-life in the huge castle.

Typical Czech Riverside Pub

by kh1234567890 about Babylon

A perfect place to while away an evening. Couldn't be closer to the river - many customers simply get off their boats for a quick glass of local beer or two or three ... Veprovy rizek s hranolkama - pork schnitzel with chips (fries). Also try the mixed salad with mysterious blue cheese :)

The Waxmuseum is fine

by karelz

In a sidestreet there is a rather small, but nice Waxmuseum with very nice models.
It is easy to find it when you walk throuh the old town, you will see many signposts of it.
And the entry is also much cheaper than in the London Waxmuseum.

The Town Square

by iwys

Namesti Svornosti, the town square of Cesky Krumlov, is surrounded by colourful buildings, including the Town Hall. In the middle of the square is an impressive stone fountain, built in 1577, and some benches where you can sit and admire the beautiful architecture.

Inside the Town Hall is the Museum of Torture, with more than a hundred medieval torture instruments!
