Description

In the beautiful surroundings of the Slovak Karst National Park, near the village of Jasov, right on a distinctive reef called Jasov Rock, there are ruins of Jasov Castle. The castle was built in the 13th century as a bastion of the nearby monastery.

The castle had several owners and did not play a very important role in historical history. The castle and the monastery were conquered several times and burned down. The last serious battle, which decided on the fate of Jasov castle, took place in 1467 and since then the castle gradually disappeared.

Today it is possible, from a once majestic castle fortified with massive ramparts and ditches, to observe only small remains. nevertheless, there is a beautiful view of the village Jasov, dominated by the towers of the monastery.

A Nature trail of Jasov Rock leads to the castle ruins from the village of Jasov (about 1km) and it is part of the National Nature Reserve of Jasovské dubiny.
