Adventure on hoseback

The path leads through Jablonovské sedlo via the yellow trail to the old Soroška (from the word "szoros" meaning narrow stone), where we can still find traces in the rocks that were once worn by carts. From the path, there is a beautiful view of the Turnianska basin. Further, we pass through vineyards and the village of Hrušov along the green hiking trail, which will take you to the crossroads of Starý les (the border with Hungary).

In Hungarian territory, you continue on the blue hiking trail, which subsequently connects to the red trail leading to Szádvár Castle.

The ruins of the castle are located near the Hungarian-Slovak border, close to the village of Hrušov (approximately 6 km away) in the territory of the Hungarian village of Szögliget. It lies on the High Castle Hill (460 meters above sea level) and above the Stád Valley. This castle is one of the oldest castles in the former Turnianska župa territory. It provides a beautiful view of the surrounding landscape, especially towards Hungary, but in favorable weather conditions, the High Tatras can also be seen from it. It was built in the 13th century as a royal stone castle. King Béla IV had it built after the Mongol raids in the 13th century. The first written mention of the castle dates back to King Stephen V's charter in 1268.
