DIVÍN Castle

back to Attractions Divín

Divín - region: Novohrad

Type of interest: Ruins of castles and forts

Divín is a ruin of a Gothic castle, the ruins of which are located in the village of Divín. The castle was built in the 13th century to protect the road to the Central Slovak mining area. In 1559, a new fort was built with modern defensive elements. However, even these measures did not prevent it from being conquered by the Turks in 1575, who occupied it until 1593. The castle became fatal for the looting actions of its owner Imrich Balassa - in 1683 it was conquered and set on fire by imperial troops.

Divín Castle and Podhradie originally belonged to the Novohradská seat. The stool area is divided into two parts by a distinct intravolcanic furrow. The northern, Slovak part of Novohrad lies on the Krupinská plain, in Otrůžky and in the Slovak Ore Mountains, the southern, mostly Hungarian part is filled by Cserhát.
