Čachtice Castle

Rate it Thanks for rating

Who would not have heard about the castle deep in Carpathian forests, the silent witness to atrocities committed by one of the worst serial killers in Slovak history, Alžbeta Bathory? Here and in other places as well, The Bloody Countess gruesomely murdered hundreds of innocent girls. Legend has it that she believed that bathing in their blood would keep her young forever. It is said that the groans and cries of all the girls tortured to death can still sometimes be heard among the ruins of the castle. Despite its grim history, visiting Čachtice Castle is definitely not a grim experience; on the contrary, it can be quite a nice one. The Čachtice Castle Hill – a unique site with a number of precious and rare plants and animals – offers an enchanting view of the surrounding landscape with charming woodlands, rivulets and small villages, which makes one stop and soak in the beauty of Slovak countryside.

Velmi pekna trasa aj samotny hrad. Na hrade je sprievodca, takze mate aj obhliadku s vykladom. Treba urcite navstivit.
