Description of Krásna Hôrka Castle

 

Krásna Hôrka Castle is a medieval citadel situated in a village of Krásnohorské Podhradie in Košice Region in Slovakia.  Krásna Hôrka Castle was constructed in 13th century by Ákos family who later switched the name to Bebek family. The castle was owed by this clan until 1578 when it was transferred to Hungarian noble Péter Andrássy. His family reconstructed the citadel to make more livable and lost its possession in 1918. Today Krásna Hôrka Castle is nationalized and holds a museum of medieval weapons. It was badly damaged by fire in 2012, but reconstruction is underway to restore the interior of the fortress to its previous glory.
