  • Beautiful place, nice people with birds of prey. For 5€ self-service tour with limited circuit. For 6€ guided tour with access to more parts of the castle.
  • Nice castle. They didn't have an English tour. Instead they give you a massive brochure foe you to read whilst the guide explains everything in Slovakian...slightly disappointed in this as i was not the only English speaker. Otherwise it is well worth the climb and the view.
  • Beautiful pkace to visit with family....
  • love it, missing more historic objects
  • Great location. the castle is very pretty and the local town is not only very picturesque but also has everything you need for a tasty meal.
