20% off the normal entry prices to the Szigetvár Castle and the Castle Museum (child, student, pensioner, adult tickets)
The foundations of the Szigetvár castle were laid around the end of the 14th century on an island in the floodplain of the Almás stream. It gained its present shape through the renovations following sieges. Its name entered into the history of Hungary with the siege of 1566 when Croatian viceroy, Miklós Zrínyi, commander of the castle at the time, stopped the 100-120.000 strong army of Sultan Suleiman. Zrínyi was defending the castle with his 2500 soldiers, but he gave up the outer fortress after the unceasing siege, and withdrew to the inner castle with his remaining 200 soldiers.
