Compared to fortresses of other cities, I don't like it that much, especially because it's... More

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.
