10 amazing castles you must definitely see in Slovakia

Era of the Slovakian castles started in the 13-th century when almost one third of population what lived in territory of today Slovakia has been wiped out during invasion of Mongols. From then the kings and aristocracy started to build castles in every strategic location throughout whole country. In total it was about 300 catles and fortresess. Sometimes the photos makes you come to the places you want to see. I believe that kick ass architecture a state of the art photograph is not enough for you to remember it for life. Your personal experience and people who will take extra step with you during the trip is what make difference at the end. Castle in Holíč
