History of Likava Castle goes back 700 years. It was once a royal guardian castle, later rebuilt as a sumptuous private residence.
Likava castle ruins stand on one of the Choc mountains' rocky peaks above the Vah river. Its architecture is a valuable testament to the late Gothic and Renaissance period. The palace complex is one of the highest buildings of its kind in Slovakia.
The castle is open May - September all week, in October except Mondays. There is a small entry fee.
