Cerveny Kamen Castle, Slovakia

?ervený Kame? Castle (Slovak: Hrad ?ervený Kame?, Hungarian: Vörösk?) is a castle in southwestern Slovakia in the Little Carpathians near the village of ?astá.

A stone castle was built in the 13th century as part of the chain of country frontier defense castles ranging from Bratislava to Žilina. This castle was completely rebuilt as a fortress in the first half of the 16th century. When the Pálffy family acquired the castle in 1588, the fortress was completed, and it became a representative noble castle.

Although the castle was damaged several times by fire, it was always reconstructed by the Pálffys, who were the owners of the castle until the Second World War. Today, the castle is a museum.
