Beautiful swans, shops and a fortress to explore. The fortress is a great size for spending an hour, or two. We loved it!

Beautiful fortress and museum, well organised, with artist in medieval costumes and arhaic music inside. Surrounded by water with white and black swans. Souvenirs near the fortress gate. Very nice... And very important to me, very easy to find parking. Recommend to visit...
