Description

Vršatec Rocks are a massive limestone massif that is unmistakable and easily visible from a distance. They rise above the village of Vršatské Podhradie and hide the ruins of Vršatec Castle in their stone towers and steep walls.

Vršatec Castle is one of the highest castles. It is surrounded by inaccessible limestone rocks, making it one of the typical impregnable medieval castles. Vršatec served as a guard castle, which together with other castles secured the north-western border of Hungary.

The castle had several owners and part of the impressive castle complex were also a bakery, mill or brewery. Vršatec Castle was destroyed shortly after the Rákoci rebellion.

The ruins of the castle are easily accessible from the village Vršatské Podhradie (about 200m), above which they lie. Vršatec Rocks are also a crossroads of several hiking trails. There is also a 6 km long nature trail. With the castle ruins themselves, as well as from any other place Vršatec Rocks, there are beautiful views of the landscape of Central Považie region.
