Directions to Slanec Castle

The document from 1230 mentions it as the castle, which guarded the salt stores, hence its name Slanec - 'slaný' means in Slovak salty.

Slanec is the village situated in the distinctly sank part of the ridge of the mountains Slanské vrchy with the castle hill. The ruins of an old medieval castle are on top of it.

Following its first owner, the Aba family, it fell in hands of the Drugeth family who built here the central cylinder-shaped tower in the 14th century. It is still the dominant feature of castle ruins. During the Thököly's uprising in 1679, the Imperial troops pulled the castle down. The tower Nebojsa offers a fine view of the surrounding landscape.

The castle is currently undergoing essential reconstruction thanks to the Civic Association 'Obcianske združenie Zachránme hrad Slanec' and its generous donors.
