The small town with 10 thousand inhabitants is one of the historical wine-region's centres - located close to the Croatian border. It's most renowned attraction is the 18th Century Castle dominating the plain of the River Drava. The castle is one of the country's few historical buildings preserved in a unified style. The building of the fortress had been started in the Middle Ages, however, all periods of Hungarian architecture had an influence on the building.
The chapel of the castle built in Gothic style is the most valuable part of the complex. Stone relics from the Gothic and Renaissance ages can be seen in the castle, together with the prison, the torturing chamber, and exhibitions. It has a Spanish Bastion offering a magnificent view to the north with the panorama of the town and the vineyards of the neighbourhood. The imposing building of the castle is an acknowledged venue of the International Festival of Brass and Reed Bands organised in every second year, and part of the Siklós Autumn events take place in the castle, too. The church built in the 14th Century stands in the area of the former outer castle. The frescoes painted in Gothic style found in the sanctuary are the most beautiful and well preserved relics of Hungary's early fresco-painting. Turkish invaders built several mosques in the outskirts of the town. The mosque of Malkocs-bej built in the 16th Century with a square ground-plan, dome-roof, open portico and crocks built in the walls to enhance it's acoustics is a prominent relic of the era. The renovation works of the mosque were awarded by the Europa Nostra prize in 1992 by the international committee of historic buildings seated in the Hague. It is worth visiting the Serb Orthodox church with a unique iconostasis.
