Castle
Kežmarok
    The castle was made famous by a deed of Lady Beata Laska, who in 1565 together with few burghers from Kežmarok went on a trip into the Snowy Mountains, today called the Tatras. When after three days the duchess came back home from over the Zelene Pleso Pond, her angry husband, Albert Laski, imprisoned her in a castle tower. She was kept there in terrible conditions for six long years. Two small windows, one viewing the beloved Snowy Mountains and the other with a view on the served food, were the only relief for the unhappy duchess.
   In 1931, the first expositions of a regional museum were opened in a part of the castle complex. After a general renovation of the castle in 1962-1985, museum collections increased and currently the visitors may see few expositions. In summer, during the night sightseeing of the garden, the visitors may also see theatrical performances there.




Spišská Belá - Strážky
   Baron Eduard Mednyánszky moved to the manor in 1862. He brought there his 10-year son Ladislav, who became a painter of the European significance. This artist painted several captivating landscapes with original social components during his stays in the family manor at the foothills of the Tatras.
   An English park from the 19th century enhances the charm of the manor house. Apart from valuable historical library, the manor also contains canvasses of Ladislav Mednyánszky and the precious Ctibors stone coat of arms from the Castle of Beckov
.
   Reconstructed manor serves to the Slovak National Gallery
, which presents here its exhibitions - historical furniture and interior complements. One of them is titled “Ladislav Mednyánszky and Strážky”.
   Opposite the manor house stands the church of St Anna, which was built in the Gothic style. Near the church is a Renaissance belfry. These along with the manor constitute the National Cultural Monument.
