  • Grodno is beautiful and enjoy it hard and for a month. The castle itself does not inspire. But the place the feeling of a real, not tainted by restorers of antiquity, abundant digs, look at it and, most importantly, a view of the River with its walls (don't be afraid to not allow plates to pass) are wonderful

  • Grodno has two castles, Old and New. We did not have time to visit the New Castle, but we very much enjoyed the Old Castle. It has all sorts of exhibits and diagrams, starting from the stone age and m...  more »
  • First was in the castle in the region of 8 am. With the Castle offers beautiful views of the Neman. The Museum starts with only 10 (like everything in Grodno). But highly recommend getting into the Castle at this time until it got group trips.

  • Great historic view, surprisingly extensive museum. Make sure you visit the coin minter at the entrance - he's an awesome character that's great with kids
  • The castle is well preserved, old an important to Lithuania. But the museum is terrible, both infrastructure and the whole second floor, talking about the 'great history of Communism'.
  • The castle is pretty good itself. There are a lot of beautiful views here to the city, to the river and parks. Very rear you can see some performance here (actually never saw myself). The museum inside is not so good and not about the castle in general. You can find here just common exhibition about different history and archeology periods and some material about Belarus, USSR times also.
  • Great view on Neman river. History museum
  • Well, pros of castle were the artist who was playing music when you come in to the castle, near gates (gives felling that you go in to the 15th century) and the landscape view from the outside of the castle. Inside exposition is like nature/history/USSR museum, quite far from the castle experience, rather disappointing.
