Much recommended place to visit! One of the most peaceful places we have visited, calm in all senses. Though lots of people and local traffic, you wouldn't see that because of the places charm. Take a walk inside the yard, sip some coffee with sweets...More

A truly amazing masterpiece with scenery to match. Was a little cold as all outdoors in winter so take warm clothes and perhaps a hot chocolate. Castle was mostly opened to explore and wonder around. A true wonder to behold.

Nice place from outside, as a big minus: there is no possibility to have the tour in English, you will just receive a printed version of the tour in Eng that will cost you extra 30Kc

I like this type of castles as a real fortress not just palace. So you may catch the feeling of fortress defender staying on the top of the walls. And also good picure views from there.

To go to Krivoklat, buy the train ticket at Hlavni Nadrazi (Praha hl.n.) in Prague for Krivoklat. You have to switch trains at Beroun. The train from Prague to Beroun takes 40 min. Then in Beroun switch to a local train... More
