Description

Once you decide to explore the forests around the village of Rákoš, you will undoubtedly find the ruins of the castle with the same name. Rákoš Castle used to be a magnificent stone building from the second half of the 13th century.

The castle was built by the magnificent Lord Ákoš after the Tatars invaded this area. The castle was supposed to protect the landscape from further invasions and raids of nomadic barbarians. After the decision of King Matthias Corvinus in 1471, it was later demolished.

To this day, only a clem has been preserved from this massive object, which is slowly but surely absorbed by mighty nature. With the naked eye, it is still possible to trace traces of the guard building, tanker and cannon fire. The ruins can be reached from the village by a pleasant, about 1 km long forest trail from Rákoš.
