Zvolen Castle is a medieval citadel situated in Zvolen, Banská Bystrica in Slovakia.  Zvolen Castle was constructed in the 70's of 14th century by Hungarian king Loius I of Anjou on the bank of the Slatina River. It was certainly finished by 1382 when it became the site of engagement of his daughter Mary and Sigmund Luxerburger. A major reconstruction in the 18th century gave the military fortifications in the 18th century. The Royal Hall ceiling was covered by 78 portraits of Holy Roman and German emperors.
