  • Beautiful place, lots of history, friendly guide. And ia also a Hotel.
  • The site is one of the UNESCO protected fortified churches/castels​. The walls are quite well preserved, bell tower can be climbed to the top but beware, the stairs are very narrow. The chapel is a simple one but it is very well preserved.
  • Not so many things to.visit inside the castle.
  • The fortified church in Kilnik is very good. The walls are high. The church is maintained. While some of the buildings are in ruins, this contributes to the broadcast site.
  • Excellent preservation of the village citadel, well preserved furniture and wine cellar. There is also a small museum inside the central tower.
