Geocache Description:


Liptovsky Hradok Skalka Toto je malá cache v hornom Liptove. Nachádza sa v mestecku Liptovský Hrádok na sútoku riek Váh a Belá. Meno nesie po malom nížinnom hrade postavenom na malej vyvýšenine pri brale Skalka. Prvá písomná zmienka o hrade je datovaná na rok 1341. Dnes zostali z neho ruiny obohnané kaštielom. Pôvodne tu stál nížinný hrad oddelený od okolia vodnou priekopou, ktorá sa zachovala v podobe jazierka. Hrad vznikol po roku 1312 okolo staršej strážnej veže pri dôležitej považskej ceste. Patril ku královským majetkom, 1433 sa ho zmocnili husiti, potom casto menil majitelov. Najvýznamnejšiu strategickú úlohu mal v období stavovských povstaní v 17.storocí. Veliaci cisársky generál vybudoval proti povstalcom Františka Rákócziho silnú obranu - rozšíril ju aj na okolité kopce, kde vybudoval mohutné valy a bašty. Bašta na Hradskej hore bola predsunutou strážou samého Hrádku. V roku 1709 došlo k bitke medzi povstaleckými a cisárskymi vojskami, ktoré odolali náporu, i ked hrad v týchto bojoch povstalci tažko poškodili. Od 1703 patril hrad Jánovi Lichtensteinovi, po jeho smrti ho odkúpil erár. Od 1762 bol strediskom komorského Likavsko-hrádockého panstva; tu sa sústredovala administratíva podnikov lesného hospodárstva, hutníctva a železiarstva i lesného úradu. Hrad v roku 1803 vyhorel a obnovili už len kaštiel. Horný hrad v roku 1930 ciastocne zabezpecili pred rozpadom. V súcasnosti prebieha rekonštrukcia kaštiela a zakonzervovanie a zabezpecenie niektorých castí hradu. Momentálne sa kaštiel nachádza v súkromnom vlastníctve.
