About Zvolen

Zvolen, which is a town on the confluence of the Hron and Slatina rivers, is located in central Slovakia. The name of Zvolen is of Slovak origin and it means "the chosen one, splendid, excellent". Zvolen, whose history dates back to the 9th century and which was the capital in the 1760s, is an attraction center for tourists with its historical and natural beauties.

For the city, which was built under the Pusty Hrad Castle, the castle has a historical meaning. It is also one of the largest medieval castles of Europe. Zvolen Castle is a castle that was built later and became a hunting facility in the course of time. In addition, Hungary’s queen and emperor celebrated their wedding in this castle. Pancierovy vlak (armored train of Hurban) that you will come across on the route to the castle is exhibited as the first train produced in this city.
