Geocache Description:


SK:
Na severnom Spiši nad údolím rieky Poprad sa od roku 1307 týci hrad Lubovna s bohatou históriou i zaujímavou architektúrou. Medzi hradmi na Slovensku mu prináleží unikátne miesto. I ked pôvodne slúžil ako strážca severnej hranice Uhorska, pocas 360 rokov bol sídlom správcov zálohovaného územia casti Spiša Polsku. Najväcšmi sa preslávil pocetnými královskými návštevami a šest rokov tu boli uschované i polské korunovacné klenoty. Výraznými prestavbami v 16. a 17.storocí sa zmenil na velkú renesancnú pevnost.
Prekrásna aleja v podhradí a blízky skanzen s hodnotným dreveným kostolom iba dotvárajú osobitnú atmosféru hradu Lubovna.
Pre deti bude zaujímavá návšteva historického vojenského tábora pod hradom Lubovna
Viac informácií nájdete tu a tu.

Keška je na súradniciach za hradom a skanzenom.
