In 1382, the construction of this originally hunting castle was completed here. A little over one hundred years later, fortifications were added, separated from the rectangular block of the building, along with characteristic round defense towers.
View from the street.
One of the sides of the main building.
Large windows and small embrasures.
Part of the building as a half-timbered – probably just a painting.
The color of lemon peel visible in the pictures is, of course, added by computer. In fact, the facade of the castle is rather gray. Pictures taken in July, where the trees were covered with juicy greens.
The main gate of Zvolen Castle.
A beautiful park around the castle.
Trees surround the old walls and towers.
Well visible stones – the basis of the construction.
The bird patrols around.
The facade of a defensive tower requires a slight refurbishment here.
Bars in the windows – artistic blacksmithing.
After revitalization in the 1960s, the Zvolen Castle can be visited. Permanent and occasional exhibitions are here organized by the Slovak National Gallery.
