Directions to Cervený Kamen Castle

The most beautiful castle in the Small Carpathians, situated just several tens of kilometres from Bratislava is one of the best preserved Slovak castles - Cervený Kamen (Red Stone).

The castle was built on quartzite rock of reddish color, therefore the name of the castle Cervený Kamen (Red Stone).

In the 16th century, it was rebuilt into a bulky fortress with a fortification system that was then one of the top military-defensive systems.

Although the Fugger family built the massive fortress in the first half of the 16th century on the site of an original royal castle from 13th century, its history is connected with the noble Pálffy family. This important Hungarian aristocratic family gradually altered it into a stately residence with rich stucco ornamentation and frescos in the interior.

The Pálffys inhabited the castle until 1945. The visitors can admire the famous times of the castle and scenes from its rich history primarily during fencing festivals and falconers shows. Summer night tours of the castle also have their special atmosphere.

Nowadays the castle houses a museum presenting historic housing of the nobility.

Because of its unique charm, the castle has become the venue of shooting of various films and fairy tales like The Princess Fantaghirò, The Dragon Heart or Cinka Panna.

The museum offers visitors two sightseeing tours - Museum tour and Renaissance fortress tour.
