  • When the cashier told me that our tickets are ("every exhibition is also a") for 2 days, almost kinevettük, and then we realized that there are plenty of attractions for 2 days. Unfortunately, we could not have foreseen this, so really only végigrohantunk in some places, but it is almost 4 hours we spent here. Very nice place, and in the summer, when it bursts into the park, you find much more beautiful. Mainly, because I think the adults recommend little ones here up to the vasútmodell exhibition of interest.

  • This 18 century castle is obliged to Soviet intelligence officer who defended the Castle from looting during the liberation. As a result, one can still admire the Honorable House, Gelikona library and its thousands of volumes, period furniture and lovely collection of weapons. Strolling through the garden, stop at the castle terrace and enjoy the beautiful view of Lake Balaton.
