The Boldogko Castle are ruins of a medieval fortress in northern Hungary . It is situated close to the village of Boldogkovaralja , about 25 km west of the town of Sárospatak and 50 km north of the city of Miskolc .

Basic Facts

The fortress with an irregular plan is located on the top of a hill which looks like a sleeping lion. The oldest preserved castle construction, the Old Tower, dates back to the 13th century. The Boldogko Castle was expanded and reconstructed in the 14th century. Besides the inner castle, an unusual triangular tower was erected. The Boldogko Castle was renovated in 2002. Both towers and the guardhouse are accessible to public. A wooden footbridge goes from the lower courtyard to the ramparts. There is a nice view upon the Hernád river valley and the Zemplín Mountains.
