Why EST Frontier Slovakia

Orava Castle

Join us on a visit to one of the kind historic attractions in Orava region of Slovakia – the Orava Castle, built as an “eagle’s nest” on top of the rock above the river…
EST Frontier Slovakia will take you back in time to a place where horse drawn carriages frequent the streets, musicians perform traditional music at historic Orava castle where you can also see traditional costume show or experience the ghostly and scary late night tours of castle with sound and visual effects.
Many scenes of the 1922 black and white movie “Nosferatu” (adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula) were filmed here. Since then, other movies were shot at the castle as well. Castle is built on a natural rock formation known as “castle cliff” – 112 meters (367 ft) high, surrounded by Orava river.  Structure is divided into Lower, Middle and Upper Castle.  In the Middle Castle is a well that was originally 90 meters (295 ft) deep. To get to the top of the citadel in the Upper castle, you must overcome 880 stairs. This is just a little peek into what awaits you if you decide to visit this historical monument, located in the beautiful Orava region.
