Modrý Kameň - region: Novohrad

Type of interest: Castles, chateaus

The Blue Rock castle was built in the 12th century by an important and weighty Ugrian family of the Balassas that lived here till the half of the 19th century. An important Renaissance poet and an anti–Turkish fighter, Bálint Balassi /1554-1594/, comes of this family. The last owner, Countess Gabriela Almássy sold the castle with manor-house and neighbouring lands to the Czecho-Slovak State in 1923.

The area of the castle is created by ruins of the Gothic castle from the 12th century and of a Baroque castle from 1730 that is a seat of a museum at present. Part of the Baroque castle is a chapel of St. Anna built in 1759. Together with the nearby Calvary, natural reservation Blue-Rock forest steppe and Chestnut area it creates an interesting historical-cultural unit providing the visitors with nice experience as well as relax.
