One of the most popular and rightly acclaimed castle of Hungary, Castle of Szigliget located on the northern shore of Lake Balaton can run back over 750 years history. Castle of Szigliget is bordered by LAKE BALATON in the south and by Tapolca turf field and mountains in the north. Wherever we approach Szigliget the old castle unfolds from all direction. Castle of Szigliget is one of our few castles that never bore the Ottoman ensign on its towers in the Turkish times. Manful soldiers maintained their independence for 150 years, only the Habsburg-hate destroyed it, blowing up his walls. (tripadvisor.com)
