Stories, hidden secrets, and gossip from the Middle Ages and the past centuries await to be revealed, as we walk the cobblestone streets, passing by palaces, churches, colorful houses, and cozy courtyards. A real "behind the scenes" walk including all the secrets of our kings and queens, Dracula, and even Houdini.

We’ll walk through the Castle Garden Bazaar, believe us, it's the most elegant way to get to the top of the Castle hill. We'll show you the last remains of the medieval castle from the 13th century, and see the splendid residences of our political leaders.

We'll take a walk around the 18th century Baroque palace, so that we can share with you all its secrets.
