Subject: Zamek Lietava

Other names Lietavský hrad; 1316 Lytwa, 1318 castrum Litwa
Замок в Словакии. 8 км от Зилина. Имеет ли что нибуть общее с Литвой?
Zamek Lietava (słow. Lietavský hrad, starsze nazwy: Litova, Letava, Lethawa, Zsolnalitva) - ruiny zamku z XIII w., położone na szczycie skalnego grzebienia góry Cibul'nik (635 m), pomiędzy wsiami Lietava i Lietavska Svinna.

Lietava Castle is the second biggest ruin in Slovakia, built presumably after the year 1241. In the beginning of the 14th century the castle was taken over by Matus Cak but after his death in 1321 it was subjugated by the army of the king Charles Robert. In the year 1360, the Bebeks got the castle and they expanded it northeastwards. Pavol Kinizi was the next known owner of the Lietava Castle in the year 1474. He swiftly proceeded with a massive rebuilding of the castle. In the first half of the 16th century Mikulas Kostka settled in Lietava castle. He scattered the king‘s army that was supposed to revoke the castle from him and later on he had a king‘s representative beaten by a stick in front of the castle‘s gate. Mikulas Kostka inscribed into the castle‘s history also because of his building activity. He built a new gate by breaking through a north circuit palisade and also built a large rondel in the east side of the castle. The next owner, Frantisek Thurzo, (from 1558) had the castle rebuilt in a renaissance style. Frantisek‘s son, palatine Juraj Thurzo, continued with the uplifting of the estate and the castle too, but after his death, little by little, the destruction of the castle beginned. From the half of the 18th century the castle is abandonded. In the 250 years of a dilapidation the castle entered the emergency state.
