The Old Town, dominated by the Castle, is undoubtedly the starting point for what to do and what to see in Cesky Krumlov. Here, you can admire splendid mansions, squares, charming alleys, and bridges with romantic views over the city.

What to see in Cesky Krumlov

Cesky Krumlov represents an extraordinary example of a small medieval central European city whose architectural heritage has remained intact thanks to its peaceful evolution over the course of more than five centuries. With this premise, UNESCO included the historic center and the Castle, in 1993, on the list of World Heritage Sites.

The historic center, with its beautiful palaces and perfectly preserved buildings, has been able to maintain its most authentic medieval aspect over the centuries. A truly wonderful landscape, where you can get lost in the alleys and ancient squares, in a real step back in time.
Náměstí Svornost is the beating heart of the old town, particularly impressive at Christmas, when the traditional markets are set up. The glance is truly impressive, lined with restaurants, shops, bars, bourgeois residences and beautiful pastel-colored buildings.
In the square you can admire the Fountain with the Column, built to honor the numerous victims of the plague, and the Town Hall, housed in a really beautiful Renaissance building.


Kostel svatého Víta, aka St. Vitus Cathedral, is located just a few minutes away from the main square. It is undoubtedly one of the must-see places on what to see in Cesky Krumlov.
Built in the late Gothic (14th century), in 1995 it was elected a National Cultural Monument.
You can visit it for free, admiring the splendid interior. Visits are prohibited only during religious services.


The real symbol of the city.
It can be reached by crossing the alleys of the old town and the beautiful (and crowded) Lazebnický most bridge, with splendid views over the Vltava. If you can manage to extricate yourself from the crowd, be sure to take one or more photos. Really romantic when the sun goes down!
Less romantic, however, will be the sight of the three brown bears raised inside the moat …

The Baroque Castle dominates the town of Cesky Krumlov. It was elected National Monument of the Czech Republic in 1989, and is considered one of the most important architectural monuments in all of Central Europe!
Do not miss the Arch Bridge and the wonderful Theater. More info from this link.
