Zbojnícky (Bandit) Castle (also called Soľnohrad)

Rate it Thanks for rating

Inconspicuous Zbojnícky castle ruins (or Soľnohrad) is situated on a hill of Slanské mountains above the village Ruská Nová Ves. The once mighty fortress guarded the nearby salt deposits. Title Zbojnicky (Bandit) castle was given to it because in the past it was a home of feared robber barons who attacked and killed the local people. Today's visitor to the castle hill cannot enjoy it too much - there are only modest remains of the fortress. But the beautiful environment of the surrounding nature and lovely views of the open valley and distant mountains will certainly be more than adequate substitute.
