Hrad Lietava, Zilina
Categories: Castles, Tourist Spots
The Lietava Castle is an extensive castle ruin in the Súľov Mountains of northern Slovakia, between the villages of Lietava and Lietavská Svinná-Babkov in the Žilina District.HistoryThe castle was built after 1241, most likely as an administrative and military centre. In the early 14th century, it is mentioned with Máté Csák III, one of the powerful magnates in the Kingdom of Hungary. The castle changed hands until the 16th century when the Thurzó family gained it. It was reconstructed and fortified, and given its own military garrison. After the death of Imre Thurzó in 1621, it was divided between his heirs. After the ownership disputes in 1641, they lost interest in it. The castle report in 1698 said that the castle was uninhabited and there was only an archive, which was moved to the Orava Castle (Árva) in the 1760s. After that, the castle was abandoned and not used any more.TodayToday the castle is in the hands of the non-profit organisation Združenie na záchranu Lietavského hradu, which takes care about the castle and perform the conservation works on this ruined castle.Plan to visit Hrad Lietava during your Zilina vacation using our convenient Zilina vacation route planner.

Ideal for walk-for families with children, active seniors, friends, hafanov:) To get to it can be a number of ways-I recommend the output via Lietavskú svinnú (the village below the Castle)-which is less strmejšia/less demanding-you get to through a meadow and woodland for the moment you are in the Castle. No guaranteed entry, offers scenic views of the surrounding area. Visit of the Castle you'd better apply only when the weather is nice. Even such a minor warning-the castle is a little dangerous in some places-thus primarily to look out for, in order to nenakláňali/nešmykli.show original

Замок Лиетава небольшой, не ждите от него многого. Внутри особо смотреть нечего, он разрушен. Снаружи еще можно сделать красивые фото, внутри - не особо.Lietava Castle is small, don't expect much from him. Inside especially watch nothing, he destroyed. Outside you can still make a beautiful photo, inside-not really.show original
