  • I was at the end of September. The town is magical. There was peace and tranquility. We were not directly in the castle because we had come late, but we passed through his magnificent gardens. In one part of the garden there are greenhouses and a part with birds (different types of ducks and geas, pheasants, Golden Pheasant, peacemies. It is possible to climb, sit on a bench and observe them.

  • We visited the castle with a 4-year old child, and we liked it very well and we enjoyed a great family program.

  • That’s the wonderful place. Interior is beautiful. You can feel the atmosphere of belle epoch and prosperity. The library is a fantastic place.
  • The palace is beautiful! The history behind it is fascinating, and the property is, for the most part, well maintained. You have to pay a fee for taking pictures inside the museum/palace at the time of purchasing your tickets. I wish I had done that. It was a missed opportunity. The paintings inside are unworldly! Probably one of the most impressive collections of paintings I have ever seen. I highly highly recommend people to check it out.
