A confluence of the Vltava and Labe rivers, a city of famous wine, nice castle, gothic church, a baroque square, nice view from the terrace along the vinyeards. This was our half day Melnik tour just 40 minutes away from Prague. We coronated our trip...More

The castle is very attractive and interesting to go through. A guide book helps with understanding. Probably the highlight is the map room with its many beautiful, detailed old maps of major European cities - as they once were. The wines are very nice too....More

This castle is not really a must-see sight, but it stands at such a place that views from the other side of the river simply make you wish to visit. The castle itself is not much (though pretty) but is surrounded by nice old streets...More

A charming home, we met the owner who was very welcoming. Considering the house had been neglected during the Communist era, the house is in quite good condition and they are now working through the contents etc. Nice to see some of the public rooms.

We went to Melnik to see the joining of Prague's great Vltava river with the Elbe, just before it flows north into Germany. This castle is at the viewing point of a lovely small town, trying hard to impress its guests. The castle has homely,...More

Visited from Usti nad Labem with a relative. We arrived by train and as a warning to others - it is quite a long hike from the train station to the main square and the castle. We chose the self guided castle tour with a...More

At the confluence of the Elbe and Vltava rivers lived the noble Lobkowicz family and they made their iconic Ludmila wines. Their chateau is a testimony to a grand old lifestyle and is worth a visit if you're in the area.

We did this as an optional tour on a river cruise. All I can say is 'Don't'. This wasted the better part of the day when we could have been doing something else. The town of Melnik is a dump. It is quite a strenuous...More
