Directions to Hricov Castle

West of Žilina near the river Váh, the ruins of what was originally the Romanesque Hricov Castle exist. It is one of the oldest castles in the middle part of the region of Považie.

The first written reference to the castle is from 1265. First, the crown owned it then its owners alternated. It fell in decay in the 17th century and now only the palace walls and the tower remain.

The beautiful view from the ruins of the surrounding mountain ranges and the Váh Valley enhances the pleasant experience of the trip. The imposing limestone rock called the Hricovská skalná ihla (The Rock Needle of Hricov) is also near the castle.

The castle is currently undergoing essential reconstruction thanks to the Civic Association 'Združenie priatelov Hricovského Hradu' and its generous donors.
