Castle and mausoleum in Krásna Hôrka

Distance from the cave: 27,7 km | Type: Castles and chateaux

The national cultural monument lying 8 km easterly from Rožňava above the Krásnohorské Podhradie village. Originally Gothic castle from the beginning of the 14th century is rising over the steep and high conic hill. It was reconstructed in the Renaissance style to a fort and later to a representative noble seat. The castle was inhabited as late as 1812. The last owner D. Andrássy changed it to the family line museum and since 1906 it was open to the public according to his last wish. The reconstruction works on the castle started in 1946. Now the castle is open to public as a museum of the historical furniture and equipment.

One of the last owners had built an artistically decorated Secessional mausoleum of several coloured marble brought from all continents for his wife on the edge of the Krásnohorské Podhradie village in 1904.

The Slovak Karst, located on the Slovak and Hungarian border, is surrounded by the South Slovakian, Rožňava and Košice Basins and Volovské Hills. It is the largest karst territory of Slovakia. The area of 36,100 ha is included in the national park with protection zone of 34,900 ha.

The Slovak Karst consists of 7 plateaux: Koniarska Plateau, Plešivská Plateau, Silická Plateau, Horný vrch, Zádielska Plateau, Jasovská Plateau and Dolný vrch. Jelšavský karst is adjacent on the western edge. The Slovak Karst is formed mostly by Triassic limestones and dolomites reaching the thickness of 400-500 m in the southern part and divided by deep canyons of the Slaná and Štítnik rivers, as well as by Zádielsky and Hájsky brook. The plateaux are full of dolines, springs, caves and abysses.

Rare thermophilic flora with endemitic plants is growing here (steppe and forest-steppe zone type). Marked tourist trails connect the most beautiful karst phenomena and attractive valleys. Three caves are developed as classical show caves Domica Cave, Jasovská Cave and Gombasecká Cave the fourth cave open to public is the Krásnohorská Cave.

Cave visit with small children

Dear visitors, due to increased visitation of parents with very small children (circa up to 3 - 4 years of age), we would like to kindly ask you to have a rucksack baby carrier with you for visiting the more demanding caves in given time. This recommendation concerns all caves but the most concerned are the following ones: Demänovská Cave of Liberty, Belianska Cave, Dobšinská Ice Cave, Demänovská Ice Cave, Harmanecká Cave. We also ask you to consider visiting the cave with your crying child, which could disturb the other visitors. Thank you for understanding and we wish you a nice experience.
