Karlstejn Tourist Traps: 1 reviews and 1 photos
From the train station to the castle itself is a long line of vendors, including a Robin Hood-type character willing to take money from you while you stand next to him while holding his "buzzard" (an owl). Everything else on the lane is meant to entice you away from the town's main attraction which is of course the castle atop the hill.
Unique Suggestions: If you have no interest in the vendors, make no eye contact and just march up the hill.
