Apart from many Czech and Slovak films – mostly fairy tales – and series, starting in the 1970s, also numerous foreign films were made in this picturesque setting: Nosferatu (die Symfonie des Grauens) 1922 directed by F. W. Murnau; TV series Jánošík (7th sequel) 1973 directed by Jerzy Passendorfer; The Princess and the Beggar 1997 directed by Lamberto Bava; Dragonheart II 1998 directed by Doug Lefler; Tsar’s Emisarry 1999 directed by Fabrizio Costa.

At the opening of the mediateque on June 21, some of the cast from the latest movie made here, Láska na vlásku, took part and performed, as well as local guides, the Freerun Slovakia parkour troupe that had shot a video here, and musicians played music from film soundtracks.

Due to the limited space, only some selected movies have been presented, the organisers informed, adding that the enhanced tour of the castle for the same price of a ticket can be made until the end of this year.
