Majestic ancient Ľubovňa Castle was built after 1292 from the initiative of the Hungarian King Andrew III. As a border guard castle, it protected trade routes to Poland. Famous Hungarian and Polish noble families entered its history. The castle was the seat of the Polish trustees from the backed-up section of Spiš region for more than 350 years. Hungarian and Polish Kings and Queens, such as Mary, Sigismund, Vladislav II. Jagiełło, 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 Moric Beňovský who eventually became the king of Madagascar got to know the castle prison in 1768. One of the most valuable objects of the castle is definitely the main castle tower (Nebojsa) which has been preserved since the medieval era. There is an outlook tower with 360 degree view of the surroundings on the sixth floor. Just below the castle there is a unique natural museum that is definitely worth visiting.
