  • Well maintained with a very interesting museum. Mix of both indoor and outdoor. Worth a visit.
  • Very nice place. Interesting and historical place. It's nice to spend a lot of hours there.
  • One of the most exciting castles to visit in Romania. The museum is well taken care of and they have a lot of exhibits placed on multiple levels. If you look carefully you shall find secret path ways from floor to floor and room to room. We visited in February, I assume coming in the summer will be nicer so you can enjoy the outside.
  • Beautiful old castle... surrounded by water. Home of many swans.
  • Interersting fort on the edge of town. Long history with some interesting exhibits. It's unfortunate that they have removed the entire interior and replaced it with a new one in renovating one of the main state rooms thereby removing much of its historical value but worth a visit for sure.
