Lubovna Castle, Stara Lubovna

(4.6/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
Perched atop a forested limestone hill, Lubovna Castle 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.

  • Slovakia, a small country but a lot of castles and beautiful. One of them is worthy of the Old Castle Lubovni. I suggest you book a few good hours for a tour of the Castle, because it is what to see I guarantee you come across during the tour also on quite a few accents of Polish history associated with the inhabitants of the Castle. Unforgettable attraction at weekends are in the courtyard of the Castle falconry shows, prepared by the school of falconers Slovak, moreover, one of the few in Europe. This is not to be missed, something wonderful. Leaving the Castle you still need to feast your eyes on the breathtaking views and here on certainly not overlook the Museum which is located right under the Castle. Not long ago I saw so perfectly that is stuck in a time of history, the Museum simply alive, very good. The day an unforgettable experience seal must be in "Isabella" perfectly prepared with trout and a cold "drink"

  • Finally, something in the region, in which many, it is not. Friendly young staff, the favored ticket to the Castle along with an open-air museum, a new exhibition, Falconer with the ability to take, free of charge! Even bilingual sprievodcovanie, Poles could return to the Niedziczy. Keep, we keep our fingers crossed, the progress is visible, palpable.
