Smolenice castle in #Slovakia The Smolenice Castle was built up in 15th century, but it was destroyed during the Rákóczi's War of Independence and Napoleanic wars. The castle was only rebuilt up in the 20th century by Jozef Huber who used the Kreuzenstein castle near Vienna as a model. Smolenice castle now serves as a conference centre for Slovak Academy of Sciences, and it is only opened to the public in July and August.

The castle ruins together with Spiš area became a part of UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage in 1993. It became a popular attraction not only for tourists but also for photographers and filmmakers who often use its scenery e.g. in the movie Last Legion. #castle #Slovakia
