  • Another castle in Banska Stiavnica while not as majestic as the Old castle still quite impressive.
  • Actually a bastion, Banská Štiavnica's ladmark from the time of the Ottoman Empire invasions on Kingdom of Hungary. If you're foreigner, it's not worth to go inside that much - it's 70's reconstruction with four levels of really decayed, old exhibition display about the 16th and 17th century invasions to this area. Almost nothing in English but even Slovak kids would die from boredom. With fresh, new, interactive exposition this could be a great museum. On the other side, it's just 2 euros. How it is now, it's "just" a landmark with great history and views on Banská Štiavnica.
  • Just an OK place. Very compact, little castle with a museum inside (barely interesting). If you are in the area, better visit the OLD castle which is just a few minutes drive from here.
  • Quite boring castle. Not worth the trip there.
  • Away exponaty-themed protitureckych wars. Watch out for stairs-for imobilne starsie caliper inappropriately or person, just watch out for the children.
