Budatínsky castle

budatinsky_zamok The castle is only a few minute’s walk from the historical centre of Žilina in the city district of Budatín on the confluence of the rivers Váh and Kysuca.
It was built in the 13th century in Gothic style during the period of the fortification of the country following the Tartar invasion as a waterside castke on the confluence of the rivers Váh and Kysuca. The first mention of the castle is dated 1323. The largest rebuilding of the castle took place from 1487 – 1798 when the castle was in the hands of the Suňogov family. 1551 is recorded on the fireplace on the first floor of the tower as the date of Renaissance rebuilding. During the 18th century a Baroque-Classicist manor-house was built onto the fortification and during the the revolutionary period in 1849 it burnt down and over a long period of time fell into ruin. Total renovation began over 1920 - 1922. The south-west wing was built in the historicist style and the castle achieved its present day look. Exhibitions of the Považsky Museum from Žilina are housed here at present and future plans are for more exhibitions open to the public.
