It's a great place, but... it desperately need two things: money and maintenance. Such a pity to see how this unique castle falls apart. It's too hot inside, exhibitions needs more information on other languages (especially the one at the first floor), toilets are terribly...More

We had so much fun climbing the castle! Gorgeous view from the top of it!! It is a must while you are in Vyborg. Old town is great too, needs a lot of reconstruction though.
