Description

On the outskirts of the village of Kráľovský Chlmec, you can find the remains of the Csonkavár Castle. It was built after 1526 by rebuilding an older fortress. To date, only a small part of this building has been preserved. You can especially admire the perfectly preserved windows and the almost undisturbed arches of the barrel vault.

There are few written references to Csonkavár Castle, thus, little is known about the origin of the castle and its functions. Csonkavár was demolished in 1548 at the behest of King Ferdinand I and is considered to be the shortest functioning castle in Slovakia and the whole former Hungarian Kingdom.

The castle ruins are easily accessible. The town's amphitheater and historic cottage with Perényi's tavern are also in close proximity.

„Zaujímavé miesto, aktuálne tam prebiehajú archeologické práce, hrad má zaujímavú hystóriu a pivnice aj ochutnávka vína stoja za to, odporúčam navštíviť“
Alica Jašková • Sep 2022
„Sú to pozostatky hradu zo 16.storočia, ktoré dokumentujú starobylosť nášho mesta. Zaslúžili by si väčšiu pozornosť. /Vďaka tým,ktorí sa podujali na jeho záchranu./ Čo tak opraviť cestu z oboch strán, urobiť smerové, navádzacie tabule. Súčasťou prehliadky by mohli byť aj dodnes fungujúce polopodzemné vínne pivnice, /aj s ochutnávkou vín/, ktoré by sa dali spojiť s Tokajskou vínnou cestou, ktorú navštevuje čoraz viac turistov, alebo cyklotrasou do neďalekých horešských pivníc, vyhĺbených do desiatok metrov andezitovho podložia. Málokto vie, že naše mesto leží vlastne na vyhasnutej sopke. Minulé leto nám tu chodili s koníkmi, vozili deti, dokonca robili terapeutické pokusy na hendikepovanom dieťati. Toto sa prečo nedá využiť? Zaobstarať kone s povozom na prehliadku mestom, napr. aj v dobových kostýmoch. Načo máme múzeum? Kto ho vlastne navštevuje? Máme tu blízko kaštieľ v Pribeníku aj s koníkmi, gastro... Konajú sa tam každoročné parkúrové slávnosti! Stačí troška reklamy, úsilia, fantázie, nejaké tie mapky a hlavne ochoty zo strany mesta! Aby náš Kráľovský Chlmec, bol naozaj KRÁĽOVSKÝ.“
