Google Earth Plug-in: Zvolen Castle

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


The Zvolen castle ( a national cultural monument) is a gothic building masterpiece. It was ordered to be built by the Hungarian king Ľudovít Veľký z Anjou (Ľudovít the Great from Anjou) as a gothic hunting residence in the 2nd half of the 14th century. The building was renewed by the later owner – Hungarian aristocrat Ján Thurzo at the turn of the 15th and 16th century. Being influenced by the Turkish raids it was rebuilt in renaissance style in the 16th century again. Today, its space is used by the Slovak national gallery and exhibits of the European medieval art and Slovak modern art. The Fairs of the Zvolen castle take place at the castle courtyard annually during the summer months.
