Hrad Ľubovňa, Stara Lubovna

(4.6/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Perched atop a forested limestone hill, Hrad Ľubovňa once served as a key defensive point along the Hungarian Empire's frontier. Make your way up to the castle and admire its sturdy construction, imposing stone walls, defensive towers, and a host of dwellings and buildings within. Originally built around the turn of the 14th century, the castle underwent several rounds of renovation, modification, and expansion in the following centuries. Be sure to enter the fortified bastion, now at least superficially portraying a Renaissance architectural style, and explore the on-site museum. The museum works to catalog the history of the fortress, its residents, owners, and its role in the surrounding town.

  • I visited the castle for a second time over several years, this time in the winter. On the spot-despite ongoing repair-no change. Closed part looks like it's time to get there long ago stopped and did not want to move. The area is completely omitted the topic of snow and ice. Although Mr. caretaker skuwał ice, but closed for the visitors of the Castle! The lack of a gram of the sands, and the slanted aisles in the courtyard of the ice rink. In addition, half of the exhibits went on exhibition in Krakow. Winter open as if by force.
