“Grand Krivoklat Castle”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

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.

“Nice small castle”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

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.

“Nice atmosphere around”
Reviewed 14 September 2013 via mobile

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).

“Castle visit”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

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.

“Nice short trip”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

This castle is in very good condition and it has some nice amenities, like bow and arrow rental, and a birds of pray show. Perfect if you're looking for something to do for one day outside of Prague. I would recommend stopping in Beroun for a burger at Black Dog Cantina on the way there.
