  • A pleasant program is the visit of the castle, where we went to the Slovak tourist guide, but we got a Hungarian description. It offers stunning views from its 365 window castle, original furniture, beautiful salons, halls and precious paintings. At the end of the guided tour we looked at the cave below the castle. It is wonderful to be the evergreen Franciakert, and the ancestor of the castle is also cosy. The beautiful beauty and the program offer attract visitors.

  • I didn’t actually go inside the castle, I just wanted to admire the views from the outside. They are amazing and would recommend to anyone.  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!
