  • The history of this place is mind blowing. The preservation efforts contributed to this place is astonishing! Not only does it give you insight on the history of Hungary, it also gives you a broad view on what was accomplished in history and it is quite sad that the same creativity and talent is not as common. Remarkable and worth a visit!
  • I didn't visit the museum but the castle itself is really a gem
