  • A larger group is a good idea to reserve your appointment in advance. The length of your visit to the castle depends on which program the visitor takes. Our program took 1.5 hours. Hungarian-language leadership cannot be claimed, instead they give a card with the information about each room, the locations and the details. Part of the castle is now being renovated, but the rest is very nicely kept. They expect to walk a lot of stairs, but it's worth it.

  • A piece of Slovak history to be seen. Well-organized collections, on which the guide provides a knowledgeable and witty interpretation, have no mistake. A visit to the season in beautiful autumn weather had no mistake. It was completed in a nearby restaurant. The only shameless are the insanous stalls of access to the castle. However, their owners do not bother.

  • 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!
