Lesko Castle

Lesko, Poland

On the peak of a steep mountain situated on the right bank of the San river, the ruins of Sobień castle from the second half of the 14th century can be seen. The castle was owned by the wealthy chivalry house of Kmita. Then the Kmita family moved their abode to Lesko, where Piotr Kmita erected a castle in the16 th century, which was subsequently extended by the Stadnicki family. The castle is open to visitors.

An Italian park was established already in the 16th century and continued through the 17th century. In the 18th century the park was planted with lime tree alleys. They are listed in the castle records from that century. In the first half of the 19th century the Krasicki family established a landscape park around the castle.

The castle is beautiful, but everything is closed, you can't enter the castle.

Beautiful surroundings of the hotel, large rooms and clean. So much for the advantages of the hotel. Cold water even after 15 minutes as it flew, it was not going to bathe in it and not wash your face. The website says that there is a restaurant that is open only in the season, as it turned out later, but for a group it was possible to make lunch and dinner. Breakfast from 8 to 10 But what if at 8.50 there were leftovers of the whole smorgasbord. But the lady who put the pate to the sausage with her bare hands and then wiped her hands on a towel. And then the table and the plates on which the clean artificial ones landed afterwards, was a complete failure. Who does not care about hot water and only sleep in the castle, I recommend it, because nothing more can be expected. This is how you save on guests

The only advantage of this "hotel - castle" is the potential for further development, but it must find an investor who will want to make something more out of it than a scenery for the film "holidays with ghosts" :-) The object defends itself with its location because it is close to the Solina. The pluses of our stay could include service and breakfast which was really tasty and filling. The BIG downside was the condition of the bathroom - on the walls you could see the hair of previous guests glued to it, which I had to remove with one dedicated towel. Of course, the problem with the drain of water from the shower caused by the clogging of the drain (various things - bleee....). The bedding in the room seemed clean :-) and the door letting everything that happens in the room outside and from the outside into the room.

Good breakfasts, rooms like from the 70's. If someone needs to sleep-ok, but there is no need to count on more "pluses".

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.
