Bory Castle

Reviewed By Mel B - Hanoi, Vietnam

As part of a day tour of the Balaton lake area we took in the great old capital town of Szekesfehervar. Knowing my interest in Castles our driver (we hired a car and you need one to access it) drove us to Bory Castle. However, it turned out to be a modern fairytale place with a dragon as a keeper. We lasted about 5 minutes before we walked out.

Reviewed By UAvron - Israel

The Flower Clock is a Szekesfehervar Icon, it is there for over fifty years. In the middle you have the Clock Face and by its side you will see the name of Szekesfehervar and the current year. It is something nice to look at, keeping the time for decades within fresh plants every year

Reviewed By John-Kaye5 - Leeds, United Kingdom

Not the place that I would usually go to but the 21st June was free evenings in the museums so I went. What a joy a museum so stylish and well laid out that it took you back not only to your own childhood but to the very essence of what toys were all about. If you are there don't miss it

Black Eagle Chemist's Shop

Reviewed By Marioviaggiatore - Turin, Italy

It is a small but nice old pharmacy, with woodden furniture and many glass vase.
Still it is a very small exibition and, despite beeing very cheap, it doesn't worth paying: what you can see in the entrane room is practically all.
But is good to pay to sustain the initiative !
Worth a visit while in the city of Szekesfehervar.

there is nothing to see only some rocks and billboards. As the billboards can be read on internet as well see no point to pay to see them

The museum is well located. The ticket is cheap. It is not something special but you have not many different options for museums and sightseeings in this small town. So, visit it!

Szent Anna Chapel

Reviewed By John-Kaye5 - Leeds, United Kingdom

A small medieval chapel but has more spirituality than the three larger baroque churches that are in the centre. The only problem was that you were restricted to look through the metal grill and not enter into the body of the church.

Fertozug Petting Zoo

Reviewed By Ferenc B - Budapest, Hungary

This peaceful place is tucked away from the crowd and could serve as a standalone program if you happened to spend few days at lake Velence or a stop on your motorway journey on M7. You have to do a 5 minute detour towards Dunaujvaros on road 62.
We are regular summertime visitors from a nearby city and believe it is ideal place for animal lover kids, they can pet and feed bunnies, hamsters, goats, sheeps, ponies etc. and get to know others like owls, peacock, squirrel... You can buy pet food at the place but also can bring your apple and carrot pieces to use.
Do not expect anything luxury or similar to big zoos but rest assured your kid will love it. Entry ticket is more then affordable.
They do not sell refreshment so make sure you stop by a corner store and bring water and snack for your kids.
And a last little warning... sheeps are pushing hard for the food, watch you little one if she/he is holding the pet food bag:)
