    We have made with the leadership. We have received the cards from our bed and breakfast innkeeper. We have parked our car in the car park at the station. Incredibly cheap (10 cents per hour). The castle itself can be visited only with the leadership. The guide is very interesting, if not quite as inexpensive. Wood furniture is unique!
