I am booking a private shuttle to travel between Prague and Cesky Krumlov, so that we can make a couple of scenic stops on the way. (We will be spending the night in Cesky Krumlov.)
I have been looking at possible stops that might interest me, and have come up with the following list. I want to choose maybe one or, at most, two stops other than Cesky Budejovice. I am interested in castles. What I don't know is how practical my choices are. I don't want to ask (or pay a bunch extra) for a driver to wait while we do a two-hour hike to see a castle, for example. Here are my ideas:
Hluboká nad Vltavou Chateau - I'm leaning toward this, because it looks so very pretty in the photos.
I'd also love to see some beautiful ruins of a stone castle, such as:
Choustnik Ruins--this one really interests me, but I think it's a hike and not a quick stop
Which of these, if any, would be reasonable stops along the way to Cesky Krumlov, without too much of a detour or hike?
