Easily reachable from the city centre, you can take a slow and steady walk up the hill to this castle. There are plenty of stopping places, and paths with different inclines so people who want to take it easy can. It was very beautiful in the snow, with a handful of people walking dogs. You can get two tickets -... More

It was Jan and snow lay round about. Magical and cold. The prison was recommended for a tour but I only went to the tower for the views. There is a pleasant garden surrounding the fort. In the winter you are all alone a special feeling.

It is really nice to visit Špilberk Castle. The are big casemates (around 1 hour there). Inside of the Castle is big museum (3 floors!) where you can see many interesting things and some of the expositions are just seasonal. Also there is very nice view on the city! I like the coffee shop there, in some way, it has... More

Walking around or inside this castle is always relaxing. You have to pay to get inside the actual castle but walking around in the grounds is free. Fantastic views and interesting history!

It's a wonderful place, has a little bit of everything,some history, a bit of traditional art and a dash of modern art. Although, text on the wall describing the exhibits should also have an English version, so we don't have to carry around a translation prospect that's given to you at the entrance of every room. Other than that, a... More
