One of the most beautiful sights one will see while in Eastern Europe. The walk up is incredible and the views from above are absolutely breathtaking. Must see while in Europe.

Short bus drive from city centre but worth it. Entry is €5,- and the views are stunning. You can walk around all over the place, the village is cute too.

It's worth to take a walk around the park and the castle, not just within the castle. Unfortunately the castle itself is not a dog friendly place, but it has an excellent view over the rivers.

Took a bus to the castle and it was relatively easy. Nice country town, although very quiet in October, still a nice visit. The castle was also a nice wonder. Lovely views from the top and interesting history in the area.

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!
