Location on the map


A unique exposition of criminal punishment and instruments of torture, spread throughout the newly-reconstructed 15th cellars below the Český Krumlov town Hall on the town square.



Exposition of criminal punishment and instruments


Nearly 100 displays and dozens of historical engravings are contained in an area covering 400 square meters. The mystical atmosphere of the cellar is enhanced by wax figures in an authentic enviroment, sound effects, and even two special audio-visual effects (witch-burning and sword execution) which intensify this already-unoque experience.
