The northern tower of Revište castle near Žarnovica will be accessible to visitors this summer season.

The association for preserving Revište castle has been working for several years to save the Gothic castle. This summer, they joined forces with the Regional Organisation for Tourism (OOCR) Gron and Development Agency of Banská Bystrica self-governing region (RA BBSK) to prepare events at the castle.

“During the summer, we organise several events to make the castle more appealing to the youngest ones,” said Miroslav Seget of the association, as quoted by the SITA newswire. During the events, they will present historical costumes, replicas of weapons and other equipment.

Together with OOCR Gron and RA BBSK, they worked out a development plan for the castle. They want to preserve the character of ruins. The plans will also help to prepare a sightseeing route.

The castle Revište is part of the former fortification line in Pohronie.
