Krasna Horka Castle

The Krasna Horka Castle is a castle in Slovakia, built on a hilltop overlooking the village of Krasnohorske Podhradie near Roznava, in Kosice Region. The first recorded mention of the castle was in 1333. In 1961 Krasna Horka was designated a National Cultural Monument of the Slovak Republic. It was said to be one of the country's best-preserved castles. On 10 March 2012 the castle was extensively damaged by fire.


The castle was built in the 13th century by the Akos brothers on a trade route leading from Transylvania through Kosice to Spis and today's Poland. The Akos family (which later changed its name to Bebek) lived in Krasna Horka from the mid-13th century to 1566, apart from a short period when the Mariassy family seized control of the castle. In 1578 the castle passed into the hands of Peter Andrassy and remained in the possession of the Andrássy family up until 1918 (the year the First Czechoslovak Republic was founded).

During 2010 and 2011 the castle underwent renovation and was re-opened to public in April, 2011.
