  • The castle grounds are absolutely worth visiting, the rest of town not. Gorgeous setting, perfect for a walk.  more »
  • Very good location in the center of the city, close to some restaurants, shops, mall and the castle.  more »

  • Rude, unhelpful staff! We were just passing but decided to stop to give a quick visit to the castle. However after a steep walk up to the castle it turned out that they do not accept card payments. Upon requiring where could we find the closest cash point we were told that "In the city." Really?! Also since we had a limited time we asked which parts would she recommend to visit whereupon we again received a real unhelpful reply in a very RUDE manner too! Excuse me?! So yeah, we just skipped the visit, shame.
  • The church was nice. The museum is all in Slovak language so save the extra 1.5€. Buy for 0.5€ a ticket to the church only
