Entrance is €2 but €1 for seniors and students. We unfortunately did not have our student cards, but the woman still gave us the student price! I liked this museum because it is quite small so it doesn’t take a really long time to look...More

Indeed the ferry is behind the castle and in front of the information kiosk. if you reach the lake in front of Mavili Square you will see the little boat. You will not miss it.
