Travel and landscape photos captured from my trips to Hungary.

The Gyula castle

The Gyula castle

The old medieval Gyula castle is located in the Hungarian city which bears the castle’s name. The medieval castle is also very close to the beautiful Almasy castle. Next to the castle, on the left side of the photo you can see a smaller defense tower, over there you’ll find a terrace. If you would like to drink some good and tasty Hungarian beers then that’s a nice place for you. Today the city of Gyula is a very popular destination due to its thermal baths and for its castles. Also the city is very close to the Romanian border.

The photo below was taken on Monday after 7 o’clock PM when the sun started slowly to set. As you can see there were only a few people walking near the castle. Unfortunately, on the hot summer weekends, the entire place near the castle is packed with tourists and locals and its very difficult to capture a nice clean image without many people in it.

The Almasy Castle In Gyula

Recently I have returned from a nice trip to the Hungarian border city of Gyula. Today I will share with you an exterior photo of the amazing Almasy castle at sunset. This castle is one of the oldest building in the city. In front of the castle, you’ll find a large park with a smaller flower garden. Usually this place is packed with tourists especially in the hot summer weekends.

Inside the Almasy castle you’ll find an amazing museum where you can actually discover a lot of interesting things about the history of the city and the castle as well. Also you can choose to admire the surroundings by

Right in front of the Almast castle you will find a beautiful flower garden.

This photo wasn’t taken with a drone, actually at the main entrance into the museum, you have two separate entrances. The first one will lead you into the museum and the second one will lead you to the top of a smaller tower which is a part of the Almasy castle. From there you can peek inside the Gyula Castle Spa which is right next to the castle and you can also spot the tallest defense tower from the Gyula castle. By the way, you have to pay around 300 HUF in order to go up to the look-out.
