  • The castle went through several reconstructions, however preserved it's original style and atmosphere. There is a museum inside the palace with many interesting exhibitions
  • Although it is placed in the center of the city, being on the fortress's walls makes you think you are at the edge of it. It would be nice if there were any trees placed in the inner space of the fortress, what will give you a shadow in a hot sunny day. There is a museum right in the center of the fortress, don't forget to visit it!
