This castle, located in the City Gardens, was set up first in wood, to imitate a castle of Transylvania. Today it is a museum of agriculture. Since it is in a recreation zone, it´s surrounded by lakes that also serve as places to ice skate in the winter like you will see in the photos. There is a chapel that in this moment is used as wedding backdrop. As a compliment, a lake of thermal water hosts birds of all types.
Hot spring water against the limestone of the hill created this system of caves that runs more than 1,200 metres long. Throughout history, this maze has had various functions: a shelter for prehistoric man half a million years ago, a wine cellar, torture chamber, prison, safe house, bunker, military hospital ... in 1980 it was renovated and you can find several exhibitions here.
After our visit we went to Visegrad Szentendre which is about 20 kms from there to be able to see the famous Danube meanders. From this city which was from the XV century to one of the most brilliant courts of Europe, we only have the remains of the fortress that is located 350 meters above the Danube, that was the safe where were the Hungarian crown jewels were kept until the sixteenth century. The climb to this place can be done on foot, but I do not recommend this, or you can go by car which you can then leave in the parking lot that is at the entrance of the fortress. This place is crumbling because of the Turkish attacks which took place in the XVI century, only half was rebuilt. Inside you can see a museum that transports you to the customs of the time. It's funny, with mannequins representing the torture scenes of the time. From the top, the views are spectacular, you can see Danube's bend, it is a pity that it was not the ideal time to take good photographs.
