Zborov Castle ruins (also called Makovica) are situated on a hill near the village of Zborov, about 5 km north of Bardejov. To this day, only the walls have been preserved from the vast medieval castle, some of them only in the form of foundations.

Zborov Castle was built in the first half of the 14th century and originally served to protect the Hungarian border and trade route to Poland. In the 18th century, it ceased to be inhabited and began to deteriorate. The castle ruin was also severely damaged during World War I. At present, the Civic Association for the Preservation of the Zborov Castle is making its activities to save it.

The educational trail leads to the castle from the Bardejov Spa, which is 8 km long and has 6 stops. The easiest way is about 1km long access from the village of Zborov.
