“Ruins with history.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

Alzbeta Bathory made this castle famous, rather due to her mass killing of young girls and bathing in their blood, as the story said. She was let to die here in rock dungeon.
Ruins now, nice view.
Recommending.

“Closed until summer 2014”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

The castle looks good but it is temporary closed for reconstruction until summer 2014. You can still have nice walk and kids will be happy. There is really nice and easy geocache close to the castle.

“Gory History.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

A long climb to see this spooky Castle....The Blood Countess Elisabeth is said to have killed over 600 young women to bath in their blood to stay young. The views are stunning. The workers ask you to leave but we had Peter of Best Slovakia Tours and we stayed and heard the gory tale.
