I really enjoyd my time there! Beautiful place if it's good weather! The Castle is also fantastic during night because of the shiny lights. You should visit day time and night time. You can visit inside of the castle and read about the history.

Hyvä kohde matkailijalle, joka haluaa tutustua paikalliseen historiaan ja nauttia kauniista maisemista. Suosittelen ajoittamaan vierailun kesälle tai ruska aikaan. / A great destination for someone who wants to get to know the town's history. You should visit this site during the summer time or fall.
