Vodný Hrad

Vodný Hrad is a smaller water castle in Štítnik, Slovakia.


The ruins are located in a park, not far from a local church. Štítnik is about 14 km from Rožňava.


The castle was first constructed in the 14th century.

Around 1559, the castle's protective walls surrounding the castle underwent a reconstruction to better ward off enemies from attempting to capture the village or the castle. The castle belonged to several families including the Balog, Pongrac and Bakošov families.[1]

At the beginning of the 19th century, a part of the castle was remodeled into a more period manor house.
