Digital painting of Trencin Castle on misty autumn day.
In the town of Stara Lubovna above the Poprad river valley is the majestic fortress of the castle of Stara Lubovna. The origin of the castle dates back to the beginning of the 14th century. Its history has been marked by members of the most important noble families in Hungary (Omodey, Drugeth) and Poland (Kmita, Lubomirski and Zamoyski). The castle was the seat of the Polish trustees from the backed-up section of Spi region for more than 350 years. Hungarian and Polish Kings and Queens, such as Mary, Sigismund, Vladislav II. Jagie³³o, John Albrecht, John Casimir, John Sobieski, honored the castle by their visit. Between 1655 and 1661 Polish crown jewels were hidden in the castle. Today their replicas - crown, apple, scepter and coronation mantle of Stanislaw August Poniatowski are exposed in the castle chapel.
Famous adventurer and globetrotter Maurice Benyovszky (Moric Benovsky) who eventually became the king of Madagascar got to know the castle prison in 1768.
