  • Nice spot close to the city center... certainly gotta be a great place in the summer time, I will visit the exhibition as well.  more »
  • I would recommend to enjoy the outside. The inside is a museum but not super interesting. Frequently there are festivals with booths nearby and that's fun to visit.  more »
  • 1 Euro to get into the higher tower with a tour! The view is beautiful as well. Nice grounds to walk around and see other things. Wear good walking shoes. This location is not central so plan to spend time getting there (40 min from old city)
  • Vajdahunyad castle gives home for many different shows / exposures time to time which are worth to visit. Although you can't visit the entire castle you can walk through its awesome yard, sit down the shore of its tiny lake which are a very relaxing timepiece.
