The Orava Castle is situated on a 112 meter high rock above the Orava River in Oravský Podzámok. It was built in the 13th century on the site of an old wooden fortification built after the Mongol invasion of Hungary in 1241. Its history since construction includes destruction, reconstruction, annexation, fire and various property changes. The greatest catastrophe hit the castle in 1800 when the fire destroyed all the wooden parts. After the Second World War, the castle became a national monument. It is considered one of the most beautiful castles in Slovakia. Steve
