Likava Castle

Castle

Likavský hrad is situated in the north-western part of Liptov. The Castle was referred to for the first time in 1315. Its construction started with the intention to have a guarding point over the passage across the river Váh and the trade route from the Váh Basin to Orava and further to Poland.

The Castle owners, the noble family of Hunyady, gradually reconstructed and widened the core of the Castle and built the part called the lower Castle in the second half of the 15th century. In the second half of the 17th century, the Thökölys' eventually finished the entire fortification system though it was of no use as it did not prevent the disaster at the beginning of the 18th century when the retreating troops of František Rákoczi completely pulled down the Castle in 1707.

The Castle gradually decayed in ruins. After a thorough reconstruction in recent year the tower Hunyadyho veža was opened to public. It contains the exhibition of the Castle

Deer´s waterfall

The waterfall is located on Jeleňý potok, a right-hand tributary of Čutkovský potok. It is cascading, two-story and its most beautiful is its upper part. From a professional point of view, this is the so-called destructive waterfall, which means that its height and slope decreases over the ages by the action of water. Jelení waterfall is one of the stops on the educational trail Známa neznáma Čutkovská dolina. The trail starts at the mouth of the Čutkovská valley and opens up all the most interesting corners of the area. The section in front of the waterfall is equipped with 84 steps due to the more demanding terrain. As the amount of water in the waterfall fluctuates during the year, it is best to visit it in the spring or during periods of heavy rain.
