I used to come here as a kid. It went through renovation. You can learn a lot of history from the place and it is kid friendly.

Went from Poland to spend half day in this castle, with my family. Really worth the visit. Well organised, explained and nice historical place. Kids enjoyed a lot. Views from the tower, are really enjoyable.

Located in the outskirts of Stara Lubovna, 15km away from the Polish border.

In the same complex, there is also a Skansen (place reproducing how people were living centuries ago).

With the same ticket, you have access to all: castle & Skansen.

Will probably come back to have also a walk in Stara Lubovna as we had to come back and could not do so.

The story of my visits in Lubovna castles starts in times when I was volunteer guide for British tourists... They were not able to recognize all Polish / Slovak and Lemks names. Therefore I told them a story about the owner - Ian Zamoyski - who was the Polish Duke and won this castle together with surrounded villages, during gambling in Monaco or wherever it was... Anyway - starting from this moment all my tourists were able to find those ruins in horizon, to find it in the map and to name it... OK - the name was difficult so... "THIS GAMBLED CASTLE"...
Definitely this is one of the best points to visit in this part of Slovakia (Zamagurie), together with open-air museum beneath it, it is a place when you can spend whole day and come back next day.
ALthough the castle is ruined, you can spend here really whole day. Means the ruins are in quite good condition plus exhibitions are interesting and colorful. Moreover - here are also the historical events orrganized (in summer season).
Definitely "MUST TO VISIT" on Slovakia map. Of course together with open air museum...

This is another great find in Slovakia. Its off the beaten path. It is almost fully restored...still working on it. They have english speakers. It is self guided with a audio device. There is also an open air museum that is excellent. Give yourself 3 hrs to complete it all

The castle is not very far from the border so together with open-air museum is a good idea for a trip. The interior and surroundings of the castle are open to visitors - looking into all places and recesses in the castle takes about 2 hours. During holidays you can also see the falconer show.

Beautiful historical castle with nice views from the top of the tower. At the foot of the castle is a small village with wooden houses and a church. Moreover, at our visit here, there was some feast of honey in area of this historical village. Great place to take a walk and relax.

The place was very good to visit and be but it was hart breaking to see the poor wild birds with the cables in their legs.
I think it should be much moor in the 20th and stop with it. No excuses for that.

The castle in Stara Lubovna is very nice from both inside and outside. It was build in 13.-14. century. The castle's most famous prisoner was Moric Benovsky, the King of Madagaskar (Count Maurice Benyovszky de Benyó et Urbanó).
