You must visit this castle from the 15th century.
It is located in the city of Gyula in the eastern Hungary, and it is very easy to find, a lot of road signs also.
Parking is on the street and costs around 300 HUF per 1h (0.8 EUR or 1 USD).
As for the ticket price is 1700 HUF per person (4.8 EUR or 5.5 USD), but you have family packet 2+2 and many more so be sure to check it out on their website.
As for the Castle the setup is very nice and the view from the top is amazing.
You have a lake also around the Castle where you can rent a boat for rowing or peddling. There is a toilet inside the castle.
Also many street vendors in front of the Castle with souvenirs.
We recommend it!

Our family was visiting family in Gyula and strolled by thud castle late one cold December evening after it was closed. Gyula castle has a lovely setting and seems like it would be well worth visiting. At night it is beautifully illuminated and there is a pool of water right in front the compliments the solid brick fortress.

In small town Gyula, there are fortification remains with fortress and castle. In between there is lot of parking spaces (don't forget to pay parking EVERY day from 08 to 18 - 250ft per hour).
In the pictures below you can see ticket prices for fortress.
We entered the castle - 2500ft per person for permanent exibition. If you want an audio guide, 700ft more.
Coffee in the caffee is 590ft.

The castle is a bit messy but nice. It shows how do they live in really detailed an interesting way.

This is a fully renovated castle. Very very beautiful, full of interactive element. There are many programs, a guided tour available. You can spend more than and hour here, because there are many rooms to visit and three levels (ground level, upper level and the walls).
You can buy combinated tickets with the Almásy castle and it is a good opportunity.
When we where there, we could take photos with buzzards. They were really friendlyand well behaved. There were also a very small owl for the children.

Gyula is a beautiful city. It is famous for a few things and these are the Spa, Sausages, Palinka and a Castle. We were delighted with the beautifully decorated buildings, squares, streets. Next to the Spa and Csigakert is magnificent and unique Gyula Castle. More than 600 year old fortress. It is the only surviving Gothic brick fortress built on the plains of the former Kingdom of Hungary. It is situated at the side of a small lake, and is ideal for comfortable walking around the castle and lake. The Castle is equipped with a theme furnitures from history, the decor of the rooms is very nice and the view from the top is beautiful. But the beer and the palinka in the nearby rustic bar was a real pleasure. Very nice and worth visiting.

I'm a great fan of history and been to several castle museums in Europe. In Hungary when you pay 1500HUF for visiting a museum you can expect a great bunch of knowledge presented there. This was not the case in Gyula castle. First of all the castle is advertised as the only brick-made southern castle in its old form which is not true - only the inner castle standing there and it's been renovated by the locals several times.
The exhibition covers only 10 rooms, you can hardly find any information about the weapons and furnitures and it takes 30 minutes max to see everything there.
Comparing the level of service with any other castle museum it's a waste of money.

Nice renovated castle, and a large open green space. It was also a medieval festival when we visited, it was really interesting especially for children.
Not much else to do other than stroll and enjoy the silence.
Good for families with children.
