Hrad Rožmberk (Rosenberg Castle)
Hrad Rožmberk (Rosenberg Castle) Review
This sprawling castle overlooks the Vltava River, about 20 km (12 mi) south of Český Krumlov. Inside, on the main tour, you'll see a mix of Romantic and Renaissance interiors; portraits of crusaders; and the Rosenberg Hall, dedicated to the family's history. The second route shows the apartments of aristocrats. The English Tower is a 200-step climb, and rewards with beautiful vistas of the countryside. Buses run from Český Krumlov's main depot, but are infrequent on weekends. Legend has it that the ghost of a White Lady appears from time to time.
