The ruins of Thebes Castle, perched on a high rock above the confluence of the Danube and Morava rivers, are one of the most important archaeological sites in Central Europe. The enchanting landscape around the ruin as well as a magnificent view into the distance make this place an unforgettable tourist destination. The strategic location gave rise to fighting over this castle thousands of years ago. The Celts had their settlement here, the Romans controlled the Limes from here and the Slavs built a fearsome fortress here. Finally, for centuries the castle was considered the western border of the Hungarian Empire. The castle was conquered very often, but it was always rebuilt and fortified. Its end was, as it usually is in history, without a reason: in 1809 Thebes Castle was blown up by the French army.
