Slovakia: Čachtice Castle

On Tuesday I got three postcards: one from Slovakia and two from Germany.

The card from Slovakia shows the Čachtice Castle. The Čachtice Castle was built in the 13th century, but today it is just a ruin. The Blood Countess Elizabeth Báthory became lady of the castle in the late 16th century and also was imprisoned there in 1609, as she was convicted as serial killer and witch.

Thank You very much Laco!
