High Castle

Visegrad Upper Castle is the main castle sight with the best views over the Danube Bend. The historic stronghold, built between 1245-1255 A.D., guarded the Royal Crown for more than 200 years. It was used to keep the royal family safe during invasions.This is where the famous royal meeting of three Kings (Hungary, Bohemia, Poland) took place in the fourteenth century and they made a sort of a trading agreement because of mutual interests. The castle has several reconstructed rooms with wax figures demonstrating the life in court such as a dining hall, a room for dancing and a room full of stuffed animals as hunting trophies. There were also some armour suits and weaponry
