Place is great for view and also for walks around it near river. You could see Morava river joining Danube hear and it’s kinda relaxing place.. However the castle tour is kind of expensive and dogs are not allowed.

Hi, I'm not sure if you can book in advance but it any case it's never that busy. The ticket booth was empty when we went mid morning and will only take you a minute or so to buy tickets. Enjoy!
