Kosava Palace

Kosava, Belarus

Kosava castle is a ruined neo-Gothic castle built in 1830 by Graf Wandalin Puslowski. It is near the palace where Andrzej Tadeusz Bonawentura Kościuszko was born. The architect of the castle was Frantisek Yascholda. The ruined castle is similar to a replica of Tadeusz Kościuszko's house in Merechevschina. After the collapse of the January Uprising in 1863, ownership was transferred to the Trubetskoy family and other Russian aristocrats. During World War I and World War II, the place was severely damaged. Currently, the castle is in the process of restoration.

Beatiful palace. The museum is not so interesting, just some pictures and text, interior is not completed yet. Also there is a birthplace of Tadeusz Kosciuszko. Beautiful monument and park. Must see in Belarus.

Trencín Castle

Trenčín Castle is relatively large renovated castle, towering on a steep limestone cliff directly above the city of Trenčín. It is a dominant feature not only of Trenčín, but also of the entire Považie region. The castle is a national monument.

History of the castle cliff dates back to the Roman Empire, what is proved by the inscription on the castle cliff proclaiming the victory of Roman legion against Germans in the year 179.

Today’s castle was probably built on the hill-fort. The first proven building on the hill was the Great Moravian rotunda from the 9th century and later there was a stone residential tower, which served to protect the Kingdom of Hungary and the western border. In the late 13th century the castle became a property of Palatine Matúš Csák, who became Mr. of Váh and Tatras.

Matúš Csák of Trenčín built a tower, still known as Matthew’s, which is a dominant determinant of the whole building.
