  • Great place to walk to, about 20-30 minute walk from the Hauptbahnhof. Great views of the city and a nice restaurant on top.  more »
  • Císařsky Castle is well worth a visit, it is a sprawling complex of 3 buildings and one of them is the zprovozneny hostel, where we were ubytovane. From the castle terrace there is a beautiful view of the city.
