  • Lovely from the outside, don’t bother going inside especially if you are not native Slovak, also beware of extremely, extremely rude staff. No organisation regarding tours or purchasing tickets... no....  more »

  • This is certainly the most beautiful castle in Slovakia and a must-see for everyone visiting this country. They have possibility of guides in several languages. The whole visit was very nice, the staff is very professional and kind and willing to explain anything you are interested in into more details. Also they are usually dressed in the old fashioned dresses so it is really nice and authentic. I really recommend also the night visits- a bit spooky but really exciting.
  • This is a truly beautiful "princess" style castle, with plenty of history and truly amazing views from all angles. You can even get married here (obviously, needs to be booked in advance, and I think one of the wedding party needs to be from the local area, and an official translator must be appointed if one of the party is not Slovak). Even the hotel opposite offers discount for wedding parties too. Your wedding photos would be absolutely amazing, and something to remember and cherish forever, along with your new bride of course!
  • A fairy tale castle! It's so beautiful. I will never forget this place. There is two tours, one is a gallery where you will see paintings and the other tour is about history and enter inside the castle to see the rooms, living rooms and also a cave. It was very interesting. Both tours cost 13 euros. It will take around two hours. There is tours in Slovak and English. It is worth it! People get married in the castle. It's a dream place to get married! Next to the castle, there is the Zoo. I heard that there is elephants there.
  • It was fun! The castle is really pretty and impressive.. I must say that I did not like the fact that the whole place became a tourist trap- so many shops of dolls and shirts, it really sucked, and it distracted us from the magnificent view... Also the bathroom that cost money suck. It was all dirty and stinky, without any toilet paper.
  • This us a great place for visiting especially for family and friends. There is a lot history here and it is amazing. It can be improved with guide services and as a consolation - the zoo is just next to it. So it would be a great 2 in 1 place. Thank you
