Middle age fortress
The Slimnic castle was presumably built in the XIII th century. In the XIV-XV th century’s it suffered some changes and in the XVIII th century it was rebuilt. Its walls reached 12 meters, its thickness 3 ½ meters. The tower dates from the XIVth century. In the center of the castle there was a 70 meters deep well, today it’s filled with scrap. The castle had many owners but because the costs of the maintenance were paid by the Slimnic dwellers, they considered it theirs. In 1658 the castle saved all the population of Slimnic from the turks.
