The Turniansky Castle

Castle

The head of the Turňa county resided originally at the Turniansky hrad Castle, ruins of which stand on top of the conspicuous cone-shaped hill west of Košice in the east of Slovakia. Rare flora grows on its limestone slope including the local endemit Onosma tornensis, which can not be found anywhere else in the world.

The aristocratic family of Turniansky built the castle at the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries. In spite of its fortifications reinforced in 16th century it was taken by the Turks in 1652. It fell in ruins after the fire in 1848.

The legend has that the spirit of the jealous Castle lady, who killed a young nobleman and blamed her sister of the murder appears on the castle walls.

Pamiatka, ktorú by ste pri spoznávaní Košíc nemali vynechať. V rokoch 1805 - 1811 zo starého trojposchodového vojenského skladu v hradbách mesta kalvíni vystavali svoj kostol. Do charakteristicky jednoduchého dreveného interiéru kostola umiestnili iba bohoslužobné nádoby, pôvodne uložené v drevenom chráme na Moldavskej ulici. V kostole okrem výzdoby chýba i oltár. Vnútornému priestoru dominuje krásna dobová kazateľnica a vynikajúci organ pochádzajúci roku 1813. Veža kostola bola do dnešnej výšky dostavaná v roku 1895. Zdobí ju kovový kohút pochádzajúci z roku 1689, ktorý kedysi sídlil na veži Dómu sv. Alžbety. Kostol má úctyhodnú kapacitu 800 ľudí. Objekt a okolie počas rokov striedavo patrili armáde, uršulínskemu a kalvínskemu rádu. Dnes je celý váš a čaká, kým v jeho jednoduchosti objavíte podstatu pokoja a krásy.
