Description of Topoľčianky Castle

 

Topoľčianky Castle is a historic fortress situated 56 km (35 mi) Northeast of Trnava in Slovakia.  Topoľčianky Castle was originally a Gothic castle constructed in the middle 13th century. It was later reconstructed in Renaissance fortress. During Hussite Wars the castle was one of key bases for the Hussite troops. The castle was badly damaged during wars in the 18th century and abandoned. In the 19th century a manor was constructed on the ruins of the former formidable citadel by the orders of Count Ján Keglevich. It commonly served as a summer house for the Habsburg royal family.
