Town Castle in Kremnica

The town castle situated on the hill above the medieval town center is an essential urban landmark for “golden” Kremnica. At its center stands a late Gothic double-nave church with a massive Renaissance tower. From the period of the Neo-Gothic reconstruction at the end of the 19th century, comes not only the historicist roofing, but also the interior furnishing. Other structures of the castle are part of the double fortification. The oldest of them, the ossuary, is a vaulted Romanesque vault in the basement. The ground floor of the chapel holds fragments of late Gothic mural paintings. The late Gothic, Renaissance-style modifications of the north tower with a rounded arched overpass also served as an entrance. The mining bastion with a polygonal shape and clock tower are part of the outer ring of fortifications. The entrance stairs are connected to the cellar and ground floor of the former town hall, partially demolished due to structural defects in the late 19th century.
