Unfortunately is still in renovation and I wasn't able to go inside the walls, but they did a good job outside - the whole moat of the fortress was transformed in a nice park.

Definitely a place to visit, the fortress has been "fixed" and reopen for turists, a very nice and old turistic point.

The fortress cold offer for tourists in therms of history. However, as a visitor, I missed certain things (ex. displays with more detailed information, guides). It's worth a visit, but do your homework properly before you go there.

It was closed for renovation. The surrounding garden wasn't bad considering the winter. Probably will going to be gorgeous once opened.

This Italian-architecture fortress was unique citadel and made against Turks. Most parts are now ruin but the reconstruction efforts are being made and one day it might regain its beauty. Only local people were taking a walk when we strolled around. The dim lights made the fortress more mystic and nostalgic
