This castle ruin is wide known because it is believed that it was used as prison for Juraj Janosik, famous Slovak outlaw (Slovak Robin Hood). Likava Castle is located on hill above Likavka village in Liptov region, Slovakia. The Castle was build in 14-th century. It was constructed as guardian fortification on the road to the Orava region and further to Poland. During centuries it was witness of many conflicts.
