What people are saying:

This old castle is not too popular, so fewer people come here by car. You need to climb up the mountain. The road is a bit steep. It feels a little bit of field exploration. I climbed to the top of the old castle. The scenery is beautiful and you can overlook the whole city.

    Good views

    It takes around 45 min to climb up the castle. Very steep hill and no transport, but relatively easy to hitchhike, as it is popular among the locals. Views above the city are impressive. Part is being...
