Füzér Castle Ruins

Füzér, Hungary

The ruins of Füzér Castle stand on a solitary rock cone at the edge of the village. It was built by the designs of 'Blind' Anoronicus at the beginning of the 13th century and expanded in the 14th and 15th centuries. The castle was ruined at the end of the 18th century. Its architectural characteristics include stone remains in lace form. The entire castle hill is a protected historic site with protected plants and animals. The reconstruction of the castle has only lately begun in earnest. A significant part of the castle walls are standing, the most in tact is its beautiful, two-store Gothic chapel and renewed shingle roof structure. The renewed casle chapel was inaugurated in 2002.

From the car park under the Castle Hill, it is a comfortable 15-minute walk up to the castle gate. From here, a steep, rocky path with steps and a wooden path leads to the castle. With resting places. It is advisable to wear comfortable shoes. The castle is beautifully restored with information and thematic exhibitions in every part. Beautiful views. Very beautiful and well worth a visit.

Easy to walk to the top, Castle is very well renovated and up to 2021 standars. They speak English,Hungarian,Spanish and German. Also every room has the displays written in these languages also. A bit pricey to enter, but worth the view and experience

We arrived just in time for the guided tour. The guide was very prepared and was happy to answer all of our questions. She even let us to stay a bit longer than the official opening times. The renovation looked nice and they tried to recreate the original 18th century look by using the detailed inventory letters and books from that time

Seaplane Harbour Museum

The Seaplane Harbour is the newest and one of the most exciting museums in Tallinn. It tells stories about the Estonian maritime and military history. The museum’s display, that comprises of more than a couple of hundred large exhibits, revitalizes the colourful history of Estonia.

British built submarine Lembit weighing 600 tones is the centrepiece of the new museum. Built in 1936 for the Estonian navy, Lembit served in the World War II under the Soviet flag. It remained in service for 75 years being the oldest submarine in the World still in use until it was hauled ashore in 2011. Despite its long history, Lembit is still in an excellent condition offering a glimpse of the 1930s art of technology.

Another exciting attraction is a full-scale replica of Short Type 184, a British pre-World War II seaplane, which was also used by the Estonian armed forces. Short Type 184 has earned its place in military history by being the first aircraft ever to attack an enemy’s ship with an air-launched torpedo. Since none of the original seaplanes have survived, the replica in Seaplane Harbour is the only full-size representation of the aircraft in the whole World.

Simulators mimicking a flight above Tallinn, around-the-world journey in the yellow submarine, navigating on the Tallinn bay make this museum heaven for kids or adventurous adults.

Seaplane Harbour operates in architecturally unique hangars built almost a century ago, in 1916 and 1917, as a part of Peter the Great sea fortress. These hangars are the World’s first reinforced concrete shell structures of such a great size. Charles Lindbergh, the man who performed the first solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean, landed here in 1930s.

On the outdoor area visitors can tour a collection of historic ships, including the Suur Tõll, Europe's largest steam-powered icebreaker.
