Oponice Castle

Castle

Amazing views and beautiful nature. These are the attractions offered by the Royal Oponice Castle in the Tríbeč Mountains.

The castle has really enjoyed its history throughout its history. It was founded in the 13th century and the first owners were the Čákovci.

After the death of Matúš Čák, the castle was gradually owned by Mikuláš Gutkele, Dezider Kaplay, and in 1392 it became the property of the Apponyi family.

In 1430, the Oponice Castle was conquered and severely damaged by Hussite troops. Although he was repaired, his fame gradually waned.

In the 16th and 17th centuries he resisted the Turkish invasion, until finally the owners left the castle in 1645 and moved to the manor house in Oponice.

Fortunately, the ruins have been preserved to this day, unfortunately without the tallest tower. The best preserved is the western part of the castle, the fortification with a bastion and the palace of the Apponyi family.

From the village of Oponice follow the green sign to the castle within 1 hour. A longer route leads from the village of Horné Lefantovce. First follow the blue sign and then the green sign, you will come here no later than 2 o'clock.
