I love to walk around old fortresses and very much enjoyed several along the Danube during a recent trip but this one was a bit of a disappointment. In fact, reading the other reviews makes me feel like I missed something or was in the wrong place! The woman at the ticket office was grumpy, there were very few informational signs, the mannequins in the prison were just plain weird and creepy, and the whole place just felt a little off. It was a long, hot walk from where our boat was docked and definitely felt like a let down once we were there. The park surrounding the fortress is a bit run down but pleasant (and there's some good ice cream along the way) but Vidin itself is a pretty sad little town and this place just doesn't seem like it's worth making the effort to visit.
