  • The ruins of the castle close to Bratislava. Easy access by car, or by bus. First you have to cover some elevation, the path being quite steep, then you will be awarded by nice views to all...  more »
  • In the woods you will find the remains of an old casle. Destroid bij Napoleon troops, bloody hell. From Stupava take the blue route, then de red, and the yellow back to Stupava. After this drink beer.  more »
  • While the castle itself is in ruins, it still allows to imagine how big it once was... Short but very nice trip on a steep hill will reward its visitors with beautiful views from every side. As the ruin is set on a rock, there are good rock climbing conditions, too. Continue on tourist sign and try to find the Dragon castle..
  • Easy hike (45' to the castle), great walk in nature. Highly recommend to anyone (including children).
