  • What a marvelous place to visit! Situated at the coast of the Adriatic sea, the Castle represents such a great peace of architecture, historical site and flora characteristic for Mediterranean area. The place is peaceful and I enjoyed every minute spent there.
  • What a lovely place to spend an afternoon. Enjoy the tranquil scenery with the sea, the garden and the Disney-like castle. Definitely a year round destination. On the negative side: parking is sparce and there is always a lot of people.
