Krivoklat Castle is the main attraction in Krivoklat, which neighbors Karlstejn. An interior tour of this Gothic castle familiarizes visitors with the prison and torture chambers, royal chapel, and the castle library. Art and sculpture are also featured.
Why Visit Krivoklat?:
If you like castles, Krivoklat's tour rivals those of other, more popular castles - even Karlstejn. Krivoklat has a less touristy atmosphere. While this might limit your time here (the choice of restaurants and shops is not as extensive), you won't have to worry so much about crowds.
Getting to Krivoklat:
From Prague's Smichov station, a train ride will take almost two hours with one transfer. It is also possible to book tours in Prague to Krivoklat.
While sparse, the Krivoklat website does offer contact information and details about holding weddings at the castle. It is accessible at www.krivoklat.cz.
