Very nice old castle surrounded by a moat in which many swans can be seen. You can book a tour to explore the interior of the castle. Also a nice place to just relax.

The fortress is almost 80% rehabilitated. With a cheap ticket one can view several medieval art collections(pottery, iron tools, clothing, furniture, weapons), and ancient ones; there are some very interesting church objects including old icons; there's even the changing on guards shifts.
