城堡不錯且解說有趣導覽豐富。在不長的時間內可以理解波蘭部分歷史,有任何問題可以跟導覽員提問,導覽員都非常樂意講解且提供更多有趣的歷史解說。 這裡也是一個適合家庭來的地方,大人除了能夠體驗導覽員生動的解說,小朋友也能體驗有趣的活動,例如穿戴中古時期的服裝,或是有趣的活動遊戲。 建議可與波蘭友人同行,可以更加理解這座城堡。 The castle is great and the introduction is perfectly awesome and valuable. In a short time you could understand part of the Polish history, if you have any question the guide is willingly to answer it to you, he could even let...More
