Stayed in the "Pista suite", which is one one the largest I believe. When we entered, I was amazed. Huge room with contemporary furniture and interior. Giant windows. The place is so big you could easily waltz around. Beds are comfortable. The bathroom is huge as well with his and her sinks. The breakfast was great too. Gorgeous park with a lake around the chateau . The entire place is oozing a romantic feel! The place is very much recommended for couples that want to spend some quality time together.

The staff is very nice, professional and helpful. The rooms are clean, nice, romantic. The kitchen is great. The park is amazing. Have here a romantic weekend with your significant other and the life will be more beautiful, and you will think this planet is a better place. If you would like to forget your work, e-mails, even mobile, give it a try, I bet you won’t regret.

Beckov Castle

The Beckov castle stands on a steep 50 m tall rock in the village Beckov. The dominance of the rock and impression of invincibility it gaves, challenged our ancestors to make use of these assets. The result is a remarkable harmony between the natural setting and architecture.

The castle first mentioned in 1200 was originally owned by the King and later, at the end of the 13th century it fell in hands of Matúš Èák. Its owners alternated - at the end of the 14th century the family of Stibor of Stiborice bought it.

The next owners, the Bánffys who adapted the Gothic castle to the Renaissance residence, improved its fortifications preventing the Turks from conquering it at the end of the 16th century. When Bánffys died out, the castle was owned by several noble families. It fell in decay after fire in 1729.

The history of the castle is the subject of different legends. One of them narrates the origin of the name of castle derived from that of jester Becko for whom the Duke Stibor had the castle built.

Another legend has it that the lord of the castle had his servant thrown down from the rock because he protected his child from the lords favourite dog. Before his death, the servant pronounced a curse saying that they would meet in a year and days time, and indeed precisely after that time the lord was bitten by a snake and fell down to the same abyss.

The well-conserved ruins of the castle, now the National Cultural Monument, are frequently visited by tourists, above all in July when the castle festival takes place. The former Ambro curia situated below the castle now shelters the exhibition of the local history.
