Castles, Castles, and Castes, Oh My!

My wife and I just came back from a three-day castle hunting trip into the Czech Republic. Wow. We had previously never been farther into Czech than Prague. This time we covered pretty much the entire southern half of the country. In case anyone is looking for an opinion on which Czech castles are most worth seeing, here's my list:

CityRatingBrief Description
Tocnick\*\*Cool ruins near Prague
Pernstejn\*\*\*\*A classic example of a late Gothic castle
Vranov nad Dyji\*\*\*\*Gorgeous Windsor-style chateau overlooking the river
Hluboka nad Vltavou\*\*\*\*\*Unbelievable! Puts Neuschwanstein to shame!
Cesky Krumlov\*\*\*\*Very large UNESCO World Heritage castle

\* - The C in Cesky should have a '\^' over it. It's pronounced 'chesky'

And now you know.
