Palanok Castle, Mukacheve

(4.6/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Sitting on a hilltop above town, Palanok Castle saw use by several royal families and was later transformed into a prison. Dating back to the 1300s, the site was once a powerful fortress; 164 canons protected it and a moat with a wooden wall ran around the estate. You can explore the castle's gardens and enter its old humid chambers on your own, or ask for a guided tour. You'll have a chance to visit the mysterious complex of underground tunnels that connect 130 rooms. On a tour, you'll hear many tales and legends about the site. There's also a small history museum at the castle. Using our custom trip planner, Mukacheve attractions like Palanok Castle can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Were this weekend (mid-February). Top beautiful view on Mukachevo (Mukacheve, the only thing that the top doesn't look very presentable and cute, especially when the streets are muddy gray color due to snow rasstajavshego). Entrance fee adult-40 UAH, student-30 UAH ($ 1.5 and 1.1 $ respectively). Castle castle, is where resembling and climb, pleased the walls that have remained intact since time immemorial. As far as oshpaklevannyh of the walls and towers that are painted white vodojemul'sionkoj, protruding wires everywhere, satellite dishes and other joys of civilization "is disgusting and spoils the whole atmosphere of the place. Hope to our sometime comes that hang kondicionner plate or on the façade (and even more so in a historical place-14-15 century castle)-just bad form. Conclusion: visit the need in Mukachevo better-known attractions not but not predvkushajte something incredible-very disappointed.

  • Palanok Castle is a real Pearl of Mukachevo. Very interesting for many tourists is the Mukacheve palanok Castle, which fascinates with its ancient beauty and ancient history. This castle is built right on the potuhshem volcano at a height of 68 meters. And from this height you will have wonderful views of the city Mukachevo. The Castle occupies an area of almost 14 thousand square meters. So you will walk. Still unknown the exact date of Foundation of the Castle, but he is mentioned in documents from the 11th century. Many legends surround this stunning Castle. This and the legend of the 85-meter well, which is still unclear, howl is heard on a legend-he bronze Duke, who shall desire, legends of dynasty Princes Rákóczi, the beautiful Princess Ilona Zrini and many others. The castle grounds include a lot of different museums and gift shops, which I also recommend a visit. In conclusion, despite the cold day, I got a huge kick out of visiting the Castle.

  • Very nice castle. High on a mountain top of Muchacevo. Great overview over the city of Muchacevo. Parking space at the top at the castle is small. So better park earlier. Also there are some little shops at the castle.
  • interesting place worth to visit, at least who go up can have a amazing view to all the city
  • This historical monument is no comparison! The most beautiful view of the castle is at the entrance to the city from the Beregova.
  • Huge and beautiful castle with a couple of observation decks, which towers over the city. Lots of exhibits. Inscriptions in Ukrainian, English, and Hungarian.
  • Amazing castle I visited one morning.
