Siklós castle (Southern Transdanubia)
This beautiful castle is worth a visit. It was built in the 13th century in the town of Siklós located in the southern part of Hungary near to the town of Pécs. The castle was first mentioned in a charter from 1294. The oldest building is in the southern parts of the residential wing. The castle also houses a chapel which was built between the 14th and 15th centuries.
In 1401 disgruntled nobles temporarily imprisoned king Sigismund in the castle. In World War II the castle was heavily damaged, and from the end of the war until 1955 it was ownerless. In 1955 archaeological research and restoration begun and the castle started operating as a museum and hotel. After the regime change in Hungary the castle stopped operating.
The castle reopened as a museum in the 21st century, and to this day, it is still open to visitors.
