This imposing 12th-century fortress was one of the few castles that resisted the Mongol attacks of 1241, gradually enlarged over the centuries and destroyed by fire in 1780.

Beautiful place close to High Tatras in Slovakia with amazing views (especially from the tower) and it's possible to visit it without a guide, only with Audio guide, which you can download at App Store.

It's a really beautiful castle, really nice mainly for the scenary. Inside it's not like other well preserved castles, but you have pretty views. Definitely worth a detour if you're in the central or eastern part of Slovakia.
