Owner description: Located a few miles west of Bratislava, this castle was once part of the Roman border in the first century A.D. and later became the seat of the Great Moravian Empire and a strategic post during the Turkish Wars.

This castle and the surrounding area is a must see site if you are in Slovakia. it is about a 10 minute drive from Bratislava. We had a guide because there is much to take in and appreciate. The castle is said to date back to the 5th century but no doubt there would have been at least wooden fortifications since the time of the Roman Republic, the site being so strategic. The Castle is in some disrepair but it is attracting visitors so maintenance will be performed. The surrounding area is gorgeous and the views from the various ramparts are spectacular.

We went here me and my friend in nivember. It was a cloudy day but nothing had compromised our trip. You can come here by bus (29) from the station. The ticket is 5 euros if you are a student it's 5 but you have to deal with the ticket woman who won't let you use your student card..
The place is green and beautiful.

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.
