Description

In the southern part of the Little Carpathians, southeast of the village Borinka, hidden in a dense forest, there are remnants of the castle called Dragon Castle (orig. "Dračí hrádok"). Especially the remains of the central prism tower, which was separated into the rock by a carved ditch, are very visible.

The Dragon Castle was probably built on the basis of a royal initiative in the 13th century and served as a guardian. The castle was probably destroyed by fire during the Hussite invasions.

The site is sought after mainly by home. There is a nice relaxation area with an information board, wooden table, benches and a fireplace. A marked hiking trail leads to the Dragon Castle, which is slightly demanding and takes about 15 minutes to climb.
