We started up to the castle, and I truly mean up. I know it was more than 100 steps, for last summer I walked 82 steps up to a church in southeast Poland, and this was way more!

The present castle is decorated as it was for the inter-war years, that is the time between the First and Second World Wars.
Here are some of the rooms within the castle.
I saw one more thing I have never seen elsewhere.
The above scale was designed to weight an individual. If that person weighed less than his/her body appearance seemed to indicate, the person was considered to be occupied by the Devil and so was executed.
Once the tour was done we walked down the steps and entered a market.
More steps. It must have been about 75 steps from the parking area to a terrace, then probably about another 25 steps from the terrace to the entrance to the building. Then much to our surprise our rooms -- 10, 11, and 12were not on the first floor, but rather on the 3rd floor.
I spent the late afternoon watching TV and taking a bit of nap.
At 7 PM we set our for the Club Vila restaurant. Another 5 minutes climbing steps up the side of a mountain. But once we got there we found a wonderful restaurant. We all great dinners. And the entertainment was fun.
The video below shows the animal characters that appeared as well as the restaurant decor.
A wonderful day in the Carpathians.
