Description

On the rock, which rises above the village of Lednica, ruins of Lednica Castle can be found. Castle used to serve to guard the border once. It was built in the first half of the 13th century directly on a steep cliff, making it almost inaccessible.

The castle of Lednica is also associated with the legend of the White Lady of Lednica, who allegedly haunted here. It was said to be a subject girl, Katarína, to whom the castle lord had a taste. She refused to submit to him, escaped from the chambers and then jumped from the walls to the depths below. On the place where she died, in the rocks below the castle, the villagers placed a wooden cross.

Today, Lednica Castle is a popular tourist destination not only for its fascinating history, but also for its beautiful nature everywhere. The starting point of the ascent to the castle is the picturesque village of Lednica located just below the castle. Climbing the castle from the center takes about a quarter of an hour. You can end it by beautiful views of the surroundings, which you can see from the observation point, which can be reached by a stone staircase at the top of the castle.
