Drienok – castle


The castle was probably erected in the first half of the 14th century. Its end can be associated with the second half of the fifteenth century.


The castle had a shape similar in plan to a pentagon with dimensions of 120 x 70 meters. In its south-eastern part there was a upper ward with a sides length of 30 by 25 meters and a wall thickness of 1.85 meters with residential building. It is not known if it was a tower. It was protected by a 12 meter width dry moat, which stretched on the north-eastern side. On the north-west side there was an outer ward.

Current state

The castle has not survived to modern times. Only relics of foundations are visible. The whole is located on a heavily wooded area.
