  • This is an interesting man made lookout on the top of a hill above Castle of Spirits (Castle Bojnice). It is probably two times as tall as treetops. Interesting walkway available also to people on wheelchair. Entrance fee is around 10 Euro. You can get there on a " train" or walk for approximately 40 minutes from the castle. Definitely recommend to visit.
  • A fantastic place! Talk about architecture! Great guided tour, tons of information and things to see - furnished rooms with original furniture, staircases, etc. Wish I could move in! The ZOO outside of the castle was undergoing renovations (it's been 5-6 years now), so it was kind of hard to navigate but still a lot of fun.
  • Probably the most beautiful and interesting castle I've ever visited. It's huge and so much to see. In a great condition, very well preserved. Lots and lots of steps so take your time and enjoy a fairytale visit. Very reasonable price to enter. I didn't see gallery but Castle is enough to spend at least 2 hours. Stunning views from the top.
  • Love this place! The staff was very pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. The castle itself is one of the most beautiful ones I've seen. Strongly recommend for anyone interested in history or art. The town itself has many attractions too, that are all close to each other, so you can spend the rest of the day entertained.
  • Really stunning castle and surroundings. Clear where to go and see on your own. The plaques however only had a translation for what the room or item was that I was looking at, not the story behind which was the only constructive remark I'd give. Other than that, great experience
