Castle Starý hrad

Alike Lietavsky hrad, Stary hrad had been built in 13rd century but today we may visit only its ruins. The castle is located near-by a red tourist path which leads to the ridge of the Krivan Fatra. The original name of this castle was „Varin“, the main task was to guard the route and cash the toll. The main point of interest is the tower with irregular ground-plan set in the highest place of the castle. We may connect a trip to Stary hrad with a trip to the chalet „Pod Suchym“ and have this place as a short halt.
