  • Fairy tail like castle. Fantastic place to visit. Breaths history up till today.
  • Great place and beautiful, little bit expensive but with the price you get and tour. Photos cost 2 Euro and you pay at the entrance.
  • Nice but very tired after so much walking. No wheelchair access
  • Beautifully preserved piece of history. Tours are every 2 hours, but you see the entire castle including the cave grotto below. The tour was in Slovakian, but they offered a little booklet in English so we could follow along. The hand painted wall coverings alone earned the entrance fee.
  • This is probably the most beautiful castle in Slovakia which is worth visiting. There is a museum inside the castle showing history of the castle and much more. I recommend you to visit the castle together with the zoo which is located near the castle.
