Take the children with you!

It is the common belief that children are a joy and trouble all in one. This should not deter you from a visit to Český Krumlov even with your small kids. The variety of activities designed for small and older children will make your trip a pleasure both for them and you.

The typical and probably the most popular and essential show is provided by the bears in the castle moat - the live "teddy bears" will attract absolutely anybody, including the smallest visitors, that's for sure. Entertainment and a show for the whole family is offered by the expositions in the Wax Museum and the Museum of Torture: Meeting the world's famous personalities and gaining an insight into medieval inquisition practices is just unforgettable. Would you like to see your children's eyes radiant with happiness? Take them to a fairy tale! There will be no time to get bored in the Marionette Museum or in the Fairy Tale House with puppets and a puppet theater exhibition. You can definitely take your children for a tour in the former graphite mine - boys in particular will enjoy the adventurous trip in the underground corridors. Another type of entertainment is offered on the sightseeing raft that will take you for a ride around the downtown area. You will get through the challenging yet very popular weir under the Plášťový Bridge safely.

Relaxation and a pleasant stay for you, and entertainment for your children - both are offered at the modern children's playground - the gardens full of games and attractions including climbing frames for very young and older children, too.
