  • Amazing fortress with big play area to the rear of the fort. 4lv adults and 2lv children to enter the fort and ride the vehicular train which is really a lift. Stupidly the lift closes for lunch 12-1 ...  more »
  • Interestingly, calmly watched and walked. Blo 10 people besides us in the entire complex. You can take the audioguide.

  • Just an amazing place. One of the best restorations available and a place made especially for family quality time! Kids love it!
  • Excellent 1 day trip location, near to Sofia. Good option for family with small children.
  • Nice park with great views. The funicular is way too slow and crowded on busy days to the point that you should forget about getting on it. The church nearby is very nice. The fortress itself is almost entirely built in recent years, so not really authentic.
  • a good "eco path" for a short hike. The complex is "renovated", in this case meaning they build over it to "preserve" the natural look... not even close...
  • Great view and nice eco path for walking.
