Went into the castle to shelter from the rain. Having paid to get in I was terribly disappointed by the place. Boring exhibitions and a soulless castle. The castle interior was terribly dull and modern. I have seen more riveting interiors in your average british public toilet. The exhibitions lacked any wow factor for the casual tourist. The only wow factor was the ticket price. Go up for the views but don't bother paying to get inside

Imposing from outside, freshly renovated and....empty inside. For a stiff ticket ( 5 Euro ) one gets privilige of wandering about empty rooms and corridors, stumbling on odd gallery presenting portraits of random people from history. No info on Hrad's own history, and strangely enough, where all the furniture go ? Maybe for renovations .... View from Hrad is quie nice, especially over Danube ( free of charge :)

Yes the views are good but there is not a lot else to recommend it. (Unless I missed something) The good point is that food outlets have yet to colonise the place.

I walked up at 7.30 this morning. It is a Sunday so I did not see any other person - peace and quiet! I had such a good walk in the cool air. From the castle there is wonderful views - all around! This is the advantage. Inside the castle is nothing to see, like the museums we visited.
