Geocache Description:

ZvolenZvolenský hrad


Zvolen hrad
Tento gotický zámok s renesancným opevnením je situovaný na miernom návrší južnej strany námestia. Dal ho postavit Ludovít I. Velký z Anjou v poslednej tretine 14. storocia ako lovecké sídlo na spôsob talianskych mestských kastelov. Zámok mal viacerých majitelov. Rád sem chodieval král Matej Korvín s manželkou Beatrix, bol sídlom Jána Jiskru z Brandýsa, ci majetkom Jána Thurzu. Za SNP sídlil tu štáb partizánskej brigády Za slobodu Slovanov. Komplexná pamiatková obnova hradu sa uskutocnila po oslobodení v rokoch 1956-69, pri ktorej sa odkryli aj cenné archiektonické detaily.
