Although many people come to Gyula for the spa, it’s definitely worth adding the 600-year-old Gyula Castle to your list, where you can take an imaginary trip back in time, travelling back up to seven centuries. And at the end of a day full of experiences, you can enjoy a performance at the Castle Theatre or spontaneous joyous music and food tasting at a local festival.
Gyula Castle is just waiting to be discovered
Adults and children alike will enter the gates of the Gothic-style fortress with a glint in their eyes, which is no wonder, as Gyula Castle is not just a symbol of the city, it is so much more. From the very first steps, it invites you to travel back in time: its 24 exhibition halls bring the days of past centuries to life.
It is perfect for children too, the little knights and their dads will be enthralled by the shining armour, while little princesses will be enchanted by the period fashion on display. In the castle courtyard, on Saturdays and during events, falconers fly their birds, hot iron glows in the forge and the boating lake next to the castle gently invites you to enjoy the outdoors.
