Everything, the castle, country site,guides, the only thing I didn't like is parking, very limited and long walk to the castle.

the castle is worth seeing in better season: it has been too cold today. Still the way there / from Prague is very picturesque and the road is good. Beautiful views from the castle

This castle is definitely worth a visit. It is less well known and smaller than some of the others but has as much history and probably more charm. We took the guided tour and it was worth it. Although the tour was not in english...More

We came during the winter when it was snowing. Grand Krivoklat Castle has a beautiful entrance and seeing the balcony upon entering the courtyard remind me of a scene from Romeo and Juliet. It's a small castle but still unique.

This is a nice small castle less than an hour away from Prague. Compared to Karlstejn, it's much quieter around here and you have more time to take in the atmosphere of the castle. And the local restaurant serves tradiitional food.

Castle itself interesting. On the courtyard there was beer festival with traditional jazz music. You can find many shops with souvenirs or refreshment. We used the paid parking place a(50.-CZK/day)above the castle (next to the restaurant, WC).

Fabulous views into the 16th and 19th centuries; a great contrast from the castles of England. Fabulous ancient chapel, and more recent collections of furniture, shooting kit, etc.

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
