Hluboka nad Vltavou Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 90 photos


Hluboka nad Vltavou, is a town in the South Bohemian Region of the Czech Rebuplic.

The city, famous for its neo-gothic castle with English park, is the reason why we came here.

The castle has been used in a scene of Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson's Shanghai Knights.

This town was a favourite of Charles IV, who often visited when residing in Ceske Budejovice.

Once a Town, Hluboka nad Vltavou has grown, and recently celebrated 100 years as a city.

Its location is quite nice, as it's surrounded by pretty South Bohemian countryside with dozens of ponds and woods.

The city also holds many exhibitions and festivals, as well as sports (horse riding, racing or golf).

THE INFO CENTRE......opening hours May 2011: 9AM - 5PM (Tue - Sun)

After a wonderful time at the Castle, it is time to move on again, this time to the small village of Zlata Koruna

    Lovely castle! It looks a bit like Hohenschwangau Castle :-) And orangery and conservatory like the one in Kew Gardens. Cute!

    I must admit that I had never heard of the Schwarzenberg family until I visited their modest castle in Scheinfeld, Bavaria, in 2011. It turns out that they own a dozen or so castles and palaces in Germany, Austria and Bohemia, including this one in Hluboka nad Vltavou. The current head of the family, Prince Karel VII of Schwarzenberg, is now the minister of foreign affairs of the Czech Republic.
