Strečno castle

strecno The romantic ruins of Strečno Castle stand dominant above a bend in the River Váh as a symbol of the feudal power in central Považí. Even though they are three century old ruins, the well-preserved architecture is proof of the development of medieval fortresses from the Gothic period through to the Baroque period. The history of the castle however, began in the second half of the 14th century even though the first settlement here was a lot older – archaeological finds document a settled hill fort from the early Bronze Age. Categorical written proof about the existence of the castle dates from 1384 when it was known by the name of “comitatus castri Strechyn”. Its unsettled history lasted until the end of the 17th century when it was demolished on the order of Emperor Leopold. Over the course of nearly four centuries it changed hands numerous times, mention should be given to the names Pongrácov, Pavol Kiniž, Kostkov, Deršfiov and Vešeléniov. Results of historical - architectonic research became the starting point for its partial reconstruction and conservation. The main gate, main tower, south palace, north palace and chapel have all been completely rebuilt. In the main the north tower and outer walls have been added as well as partial work on the east palace, outer bulwarks and cannon ramparts. In 1994, the main work was finished and in 1995 the castle was opened to the public.
