I thought I'd see some old cannons, and maybe a suit of armor, but to my surprise the citadel is a wonderful museum which examines the history of the area from the middle ages up until modern times. There are lots of interesting artifacts on...More

The citadel is vast and fun to explore - we spent a couple of hours but would happily spend longer. Definitely go up the tower for great views.

On paper the place looks interesting...old tower, fortified garrison, exhibition hall. But the place has a very neglected feel...no one cuts the grass and the sign posting is absent. With some investment could become a nice location but in the meantime skip it.

Just a short bus ride out of the city center you find the Citadel, surrounded by water and peacefully waiting for your visit. The exhibits, including a tower and a bat enclosure, are interesting, mostly translated, and trace the history of this historic edifice. The...More

Together with his friends, visited the courtyard during the concert of Jean-Michele Jarre. Of course, we did not have the opportunity to visit museums, but in general this fortification left a pleasant impression.
