Full description
Explore the beautiful landscape of South Bohemia on this day trip to Český Krumlov, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and the romantic neo-Gothic castle at Hluboká nad Vltavou. Paired with a delicious lunch in a famous local restaurant and Czech beer or local wine, this is a trip you won’t want to miss. From Prague, head with your English-speaking guide to the picturesque neo-Gothic Hluboká Castle, considered to be one of the most impressive in the Czech Republic. Located in a stunning park on top of the hill above the Vltava River and with richly decorated interiors, this is sure to be a amazing start of your trip. Hluboka was once a proud Gothic castle, but in the 19th century it was converted into a pompous family residence of the powerful aristocratic Schwarzenberg family. It is sometimes called the most English of Czech castles. Later we will move to Český Krumlov, a perfectly preserved Renaissance town that has been recognized by UNESCO for its heritage value. This lively cosmopolitan town has a unique atmosphere and is surrounded by breathtaking landscapes and countryside. Dominated by the castle stretching over the Vltava River, Český Krumlov’s narrow cobbled streets are lined with ancient patrician houses. The streets are full of artists, music festivals, coffee shops, and ancient taverns.  After traditional Czech lunch in a charming and renowned local restaurant, you’ll visit the monumental castle, with its Baroque theater, astonishing view from the main tower, and castle moat with bears, who have made their home here since the 17th century. And later you'll have a moment to yourself, an hour or an hour and a half to wander the magical streets of this beautiful Renaissance city. The program is up to you. You can visit the beautiful Egon Schiele Art Centre, the magical Gothic Church of St. Vitus, or just browse the delightful local shops, sit on the banks of the Vltava River and enjoy a cup of coffee... After a full day of sightseeing, return to Prague for approximately 7 or 8 PM.

We can totally recommend this day trip very much! We had a wonderful day visiting the two beautiful castles and cities! Our tour guide Martin has great knowledge about the history and explained everything very good and interesting and we had a great time! The castle Hluboka was the most beautiful castle we have ever been to! And the lunch in a Medieval Restaurant was very good! We will definitely come back!
