"My favorite castle in Southern Bohemia" Hluboka nad Vltavou by Dabs

Hluboka nad Vltavou Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 90 photos

We ended up at Hluboka nad Vltavou without having pre planned our visit, we finished up at Cesky Krumlov sooner than we expected and when we looked to see what was around, a visit to this castle was logical since it was close to Ceske Budejovice where we were spending the night. We didn't expect to be able to tour the inside since it was rather late in the afternoon and we had a little trouble finding where to park including a rather tense few moments when we parked on a downhill slope and were trying to get out of a parallel parking spot with a manual car....

But after checking at the tourism bureau, they told us we could park on the street out front of them and walk up to the chateau, but it was too late for a tour. We went anyways and they were still giving one more tour in Czech so we bought tickets for that, this turned out to be my favorite of the four castles/chateaux that we visited in Southern Bohemia and Prague.

    I can certainly see why this beautiful Chateau was your favourite!! Ah, the perks of the upper class, having enough cash to renovate a place like this two or three times. Nice move on your part to at least get the cheaper local tour!

    Schwarzenberg Castle is quite a gem! You were very fortunate to have arrived for the last tour...perfect timing! Why don't we have castles in Texas!!!!!!

    Wonderful description of the castle, and its history. Your photographs are excellent also. Looks as though you and David had a really good trip. I've enjoyed reading about all of them.

    Wow!!...now that is a proper castle! Very impressive!! I'll certainly bear Chicago in mind for later this year...and I'm sure you'll be able to show me where the best pizzas can be found? :-) Any luck with getting tickets for the football in London?
