    We had a lovely walk around the castle & environs. All the many lookout points were lovely. Ongoing archeological research is interesting, too. Grounds were well kept & we enjoyed our visit. There are portaloos onsite & a little kiosk / cafe for refreshments.

    Arboretum Borova Hora is one of the most beautiful part of Zvolen city. It is the greenest and most colorfull part especialy in the sprind and sommer. You can find lot of foreign rose flowers, trees and also bid greenhouses with sukulents and cactuses. You can also have the professional guide here. It is great attraction for the families with kids.

    Unique armoured train 🚂 from second world 🌎 war. Located under the Zvolen castle in the park. You need to park the car 🚗 further and walk there. It could be much attractive when having it in better place with possibility to get on and see what is inside especially for kids. Hope the city understands that as the train is resting there for half a century

    Very easy hiking to see few ruined walls of castle. You drive to village Podzámčok then up the hill and at the end follow the sign to the ruins. You park under the hill. The rest is on your own and last part is on metal stairs. You see the villages around and nice 👍 view to mountainous nature. Welcome to 13th century or some left overs from Dobroniva

    Well maintained, lately renovated, great to hide under the trees during hot weather. Surrounded by square and Europa shopping 🛍 mall. Many places to sit on bench or on green if allowed. Coffee ☕️ places, restaurants just over the street

    If you love castles, Slovakia is for sure a place for you. There are castles everywhere in different stages of upkeeping. We were there on sunday and the castle was closed, so we walk around it. It is not a castle masses go to, but if near, do stop by. No crowd.
