Szekesfehervar alone is a worthwhile city to visit for its own merits but Bory Var is a must if you happen to get there. For the person who appreciates all sorts of art and relics from days past, this old castle has a lot to...More

I enjoyed my visit very much, there are lots of routes to take, rooms to see and towers to climb. You have to be prepared: this is not an average (more hundred years old) European castle, it does not have a long history, it was...More

One of the few attractions in this town. Totally worth visiting. Kind of disappointing theres no bigger story behind the castle.
