Although it's incredibly sad for me to watch animals in captivity, especially birds who can't fly freely, it's still nice to see the wild bird Zoo and show, as those are birds saved from the certain death, either hurt or lost as chicks, and then they are taken care of in the castle. They release them to fly freely several times a day, and some fly...more
There is nice falconery show and if you will see youngsters with a great owl on their arms don't think they have connections to Harry Potter. The falconery show has its own advertisment :) You should also see little bird zoo and there is also possibility to take a photo with an eagle or falcon for a fee. Falconery shows are from 11.15, 14.15 or...more
Zamocke libresso is in the area of the castle but there are also two or three other stops for having a drink or little snack. You also can buy a special gingerbread if there is a street vendor around.
Zamocke libresso contact> Mr. Krist
Favorite Dish: There is a great view on the inside area of the castle and you can try some special cakes and also limited source of meals.
Ceck the info kiosk on Main BUs Station in Bratislava and ask about Cerveny Kamen or Casta (pronounce Czasta) buses. They obviously stop at every corner so the whole journey is around an hour but it is worth to. The bus stop is right in front or area of the castle.
If you go by car then follow the routes to Trnava from Bratislava via Pezinok and Modra. Cerveny Kamen is nearby Casta village or Pila village (but not the highway)
Every last Saturday in a month there is a great bazaar in the area fof the castle. You can buy antiques, old unnecessary things, collectibles or simply stuff you like to have such as boxes, old postcards, handcrafts products etc. Really nice to come and see even if it looks wildly :)
Entrance fee is 30 Sk for adults and you should see also the gallery and cellars, it is included in price.
View to the Cerveny Kamen's Cellars :)) there is a RED STONE wall that means "cervena skala" in Slovak and u should know that the whole castle got its name according this stone in the cellars. They are quite big and were in use for storing the goods and wine of course. They are divided into outer and inner because some of them are in the castle and some out :) how logical.
Palffy family (especially Jan and Rudolf) was a family of great collectors :) when they should live in recent times they probably should collect also phonecards etc :) but they had a great collection of weapons, arts and artistic stuff especially from China and Japan, technical machines, coins and their interests touched also geology and botanics.more
