Castles and mansions

Castles and mansions have played a significant role in the history of our country and our nation. They are memorials of the political, military, economic and cultural development, more often in a negative than positive meaning. Today we see them as monumental and representative witnesses of ancient times, originated in this part of Europe. Although served the exploitative social formations, our society has a responsible attitude towards them and provides proper maintenance. They are reconstructed, restored, rebuilt and used as museums, exhibition and entertainment facilities or recreation and health centres. They are eventually seen as unique decoration incorporated into the picturesque Slovak landscape. The scenic ruins and preserved structures have become an integral part of our country and our lives. After 1948, most of these buildings underwent the conservation to extend their life. The most precious have been declared national monuments for their exceptional value.

Bystrianska Cave, Demänovská Ice Cave, Demänovská Cave of Liberty and Demänovská Cave of Peace are the most widely known caves in the region of the Low Tatras.
