  • An interesting place attests to the past and how decisions were made in the age of power in Europe is very interesting and payment includes a visit to the first floor and can be paid and cost to the second floor. The area around the palace/castle is spectacular. Entrance: Discounts by population types, children, teenagers, students, pensioners and handicapped... Good luck

  • I went on a tour. If you're on an individual trip, the top season will be a long line if you don't have to be in the early hours. Both the exterior and the interior are fantastic castles. It was good to buy a camera ticket. The cannon object outside is a gun top when you suppress it from the top. Be careful when you have small children because they move. I bought a blouse with Romanian embroidery at a shop outside the castle. If you try to buy it at bucharest or much more at the airport later, it will be about three times the price here. If you have a favorite, I think i should buy it here. In addition to the local currency, the euro was available.

  • Dear visitors, Please pay attention and don't buy forest fruits from the gypsies selling them at the entrance of the castle. They do not mind in selling each time these fruits in 'reused' baskets... if you know what I mean(straight out of the bin) ! Please do not encourage the sale of fruits bought in the supermarket and sold as forest fruits. Do not ruin your visit at such a beautiful place! Enjoy
  • Avoid. They load 200 people groups into the castle at once with one instructor. The instructor just runs through the castle to exit fast before the next group. Children have 0 chance to view / hear the information. This is tourist trap meant to maximize profit over experience. Would recommend to avoid.
