Zvolen Castle

Zvolen Castle is a national cultural monument from the second half of the 14th century, when it was built by King Ludovít I as a hunting seat of the Hungarian kings. During the period of Turkish invasions, the castle was expanded with an outer fortification with four round bastions and an entrance gate. In the 16th century, it was extended by another floor with embrasures. The castle also underwent other reconstructions, and the last most significant one was the Renaissance one, which remains to this day.

It is located on a raised terrace at the end of Námestia SNP in Zvolen. Thanks to its location, it is very easily accessible on foot, by car, by public transport or by train. It is currently in the care of the Slovak National Gallery, which uses it for the exhibition of its expositions. There are several permanent exhibitions and other cultural events are regularly held at the castle.
