Geocache Description:

    Hrad Ostry Kamen bol postavený v 13. storoci na ochranu zapadnej hranice Uhorska a tzv. ceskej cesty, veducej z Budina do ceskych krajin.
V blizkosti hradu sa v maji 1704 sa odohrala bitka medzi rakoczyovskymi povstalcami a cisarskou armadou, ktora skoncila utekom a nakoniec obklucenim cisarskych vojsk. Tazko poskodený hrad posledni majitelia-Palffyovci opustili a hrad odvtedy pustne.

Nearby the castle there was a big struggle between rakoczy rebels and imperial army in May 1704 which ended in escaping of imperial army which was finally besieged. The heavily damaged castle was abandoned by its last owners - Palffy Family and became desolated since.
