I'm a little biased about this place because it's where we got engaged. But I will try to be fair! I loved driving to this place, it was smooth, quiet and easy. We really enjoyed this place and found it really interesting. It was 70...More

A great restoration of a very interesting fort perched on a precarious rocky outcrop. Superb views over the valley. Informative displays. Cafe has incredible views! Stone steps up to the castle may put you off but hang in there. I don’t like heights but as...More

We found Sokol Grad interesting, but TBH there isn't a lot to see. The steps up are very steep and uneven but views are amazing. The little church and graveyard are interesting too but we're disappointed that there wasn't more to see - very limited...More

On first approach this rocky fort risks being passed by but it is well worth further investigation. It does have many steep steps but is being well restored and has excellent reconstructions and explanatory boards.

We found Sokol Grad to be a very charming castle. It is not very large but recently restored. It is a bit of a drive up the mountain where it is located but we found it worth the drive. Fantastic views and pleasant surroundings. Very...More
