Description

A distinctive village of Dobrá Niva, located in central Slovakia near the town of Zvolen, can also boast of its own castle.

The Dobrá Niva Castle dates from the second half of the 13th century. It was once the center of the royal estate. Its task was to guard an important traffic artery, which is mentioned in the old documents as Via magna, and which connected the center of the Kingdom of Hungary through Zvolen, Liptov and Orava with Poland.

The last glorious time of the castle was the 18th century, and since then the castle of Dobrá Niva has become desolated. The crumbling walls have become a source of building stone.

Today, the restored corner of the palace with window openings and two stone consoles that originally carried the archer are preserved. The castle, which is located on a cone hill, can be easily reached on foot from the village of Podzámčok. The journey to the castle takes about 20 minutes with a pleasant, slow walk.
