Really nice and romantic castle just outside of Olomouc. Not to big fully rebuild still very old castle. Nice tour guide, especially when we visited it on 14 februari :). In midst of winter the castle is normally closed but it opened for Valentines day. It was really cold inside, but that was the only drawback. Other than that it... More

If you are near Olomouc in the Czech Republic, do not miss a visit close by to this wonderful castle. Been doing castles in Europe for 40+ years and this one is a gem. Room after room filled with authentic artifacts. Great tour, although I had to use an English translation booklet. Allowed me to look around and photo with... More

Although this is a fortress castle but it looks like a fairy-tale castle. There are several guided tours available. Many films have been made there. A car is essential to reach this place as is located in the middle of nowhere I was there a few times. Love it.

We had an one hour tour which was interesting. They had tours only in local language and we got an English text to follow. In general the communication was very difficult

Beautiful castle basically in the middle of nowhere. The trip you may find exhausting, but the reward is surprisingly good. The place is excellently taken care of, the route through the castle is interesting and the castle from outside looks just like out of fairy tale.

As we looked at our pictures of the castle we found out that it is a good idea to take them from far far away. Castle is very tall and the contrast against the rest of the village, or farm fields is just great. Also, we parked a car at the parking lot at the foot hills of the church,... More

The drive to Bouzov was beautiful, as was the castle. Great trip on a summers day if you are passing through the region.

We had trouble finding the place since the roads were torn up for repairs and the detours were not marked well, but it was worth the trouble. The castle is beautifully restored and gives a great impression of what life was like in the past. The guides don't speak English, so you get a written guide, you're not allowed to... More

The castle is beautiful from the first peek through the trees. As you drive up the hill, the impressive spires and windows make for great fairytale style photos. We chose the "Extensive Tour" which covers living quarters, guest rooms, dining room, office, even a bath. Takes about 80 minutes which flew by. There is also a "Knight Tour" which is... More
