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.

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.

I actually looked for places with castles because I love castles. Gyula Castle is incredible, it was built in the 15th Century . The only remaining intact brick castle from the Hungarian plains and in Central Europe. The bricks were baked on the site. It is monumental. There were guides and I sent my husband to follow and tell me all about it later :-) Just kidding, I bought something in English to read. Just in 2005 was opened to the public to see and appreciate its beauty and history as a museum. In the grounds there were food stands with a lot of good Hungarian grill meats, beer, souvenirs, deserts, cakes...There is a permanent playground with the cutest baskets in the merry go round for little children. But the best part was a 4 hour show that evening! We came back when we heard about it. The best show we ever experienced in Hungary. And it was for free! Folklore dancers from all over Hungary and Europe came to perform, even from Turkey and Colombia! This was on August 18th 2019. It was unbelievable! So many performers, so well organized, no time waste between performances...Just amazing!
