Description

Korlátka is a ruin of a castle from the 13th century. Its task was to protect the western borders of Hungary and guard the so-called Czech Route (Via Bohemica). This trade route connected Prague with Buda and was part of a longer route leading up to the Atlantic Ocean.

The castle was abandoned in the 18th century, when nobility moved to the manor house under the castle. Today, a shard of a cylindrical tower and remains of a palace and walls have preserved.

The 13th Scouts' Choir Bratislava - Petržalka together with the 80th Choir of the Scouts Ginkgo Piešťany is currently taking care of the ruins.

Access to the castle is undemanding and marked hiking trails lead there. From the village of Rozbehy (public transport stop), from the firehouse, it is about 15 minutes walk. Other, longer tourist trails to Korlátka are from the village of Prievaly or Buková.
