Karlstejn Castle is probably the most famous and most visited castles in Prague.   The castle is only about 20 km South-West of Prague and is situated on a cliff overlooking the city.  The castle looks awesome from the outside.  It is really a great site to see.  The interior however is disappointing.  There were a couple painting a portable altar and a couple pieces of furniture you could see - that pretty much sums it up.
 
The rest of the town was a total tourist trap filled with numerous souvenir stands and restaurants yet it still had beauty.  There used to be a creek that ran through the town so most of the houses had to be reached by small bridges.  All together it was a good trip, but I definitely would not go back again.  Once was enough.
