The Renaissance curia of the Ambro family stands below the legendary Castle of Beckov on top of a steep rock above the eponymous village in western Slovakia.
Likavský hrad is situated in the north-western part of Liptov. The Castle was referred to for the first time in 1315. Its construction started with the intention to have a guarding point over the passage across the river Váh and the trade route from the Váh Basin to Orava and further to Poland.
The Renaissance manor house from the end of the 17th century stands in the western Slovakian commune Čachtice. The commune became famous for the local Castle, residence of the “bloody countess” Alžbeta Bátoryová.
In the west of Slovakia is Lednické Rovne, village with glass-making traditions. The family of Schreiber founded here the glass-producing manufacture, one of the most advanced in central Europe, in 1892.
One of remarkable monuments of Sobotište in south-west of Slovakia is the Renaissance-Baroque manor house (also referred to as Veľký or Nyaryi manor) with corner towers.
The originally Baroque manor house, later adapted in the Classicist style, is in the town park of Trebišov situated in the east of Slovakia.
