Slovakia is famous for the beauty of the unspoilt and wild nature of the Tatras region, while its numerous castles remain the symbols of the Kingdom of Hungary. In 2019, we’re beginning a new series called ‘The tales of Wag valley”, which gathers stories about inhabitants and the owners of the castles located alongside the Wag river. Our tale will start with the story of extraordinarily brutal lady, called Eżbieta Batory, who lived in the Čachtice Castle. Then we will learn about a legend of ‘The Trenčín Castle and the Well of Love’. We will also visit Vrsatec and Považská Bystrica, where in the 15th century, the house of Podmanickov were pillaging merchants’ caravans. We will learn about picturesque location of the Castle in Súľovské skaly and finally our journey will end in Bytčica, where the trial of ‘the Bloody Countess’, Elzbieta Batory took place.
