  • A real surprise. We had been told that the park was very beautiful, but there was so much more to it. The castle by the lake was spectacular as was the museum next to it. Before even getting into the park, you had to go through the Heroes Square with its stunning bronze statues a d the near art gallery. All in all we were glad we visited. I would highly recommend it. If you have kids, there is also a boating lake and a huge wooded park.
  • A silent, calm and beautiful place to visit. The castle and the lake are magnificent. In the summertime, a good place to escape to read a book, have a picnic, etc. In the wintertime, the same lake is an ice skating rink which is so unique. Highly recommended.
