The castle of Uhrovec is joining the Night of Castle Ruins scheduled for August 19. The civic association housing volunteers working on the preservation of the castle ruins has prepared a multimedia installation dedicated to an outbuilding, Martin Varga, the head of the association informed.
The ruins of Uhrovec Castle are located about 15 kilometres from the town of Bánovce nad Bebravou. Sitting atop a steep hill in the Strážovské Vrchy mountains, it is one of the oldest and most beautiful preserved examples of castle architecture in Slovakia. Even so, Uhrovec is one of the country’s lesser-known castles.
Volunteers plan to completely restore the outbuilding within next three years.
The installation will take place after sunset, from 20:30 until 23:30.
“The installation will bring an innovative presentation of cultural heritage via new technologies,” said Varga as cited by the TASR newswire.
The premises of the castle will be open for visitors also during the day. The volunteers will also prepare refreshments to be served in a period style.
The ruins of castels Kamenica, Lednica, Katarínka, Bystrica, Brekov, Hričovské Podhradie and others will participate in the Night of Castle Ruins.
