Castles and Chateaux in Orava
Slovakia is a country of historical, fortified and marvellous buildings. There are more than 100 stunning castles or chateaux and at least double this number of manor houses built in different historical eras and styles.
In the past, they were the protagonists of history and their owners controlled the life of the country and its people. Every manor house area also had a gorgeous garden or park. The curias once owned by petty gentry can be seen in almost every village in Slovakia.
