Kostel castle
[SLOVENSKO]
Kostel castle is rising above the Kolpa valley. The castle is in ruins which are renovating now. From the top of the castle hill is a great vista to Kolpa valley. The castle was first mentioned in 1336 and had an important strategic function in this teritory. It was occupied by the Turks for a short period in 1578. The Turks tried to overrun the castle several times but only the trick helped them: the Turks dressed up as Croatian peasands and carrying babies in their hands. The castle soldiers oppened the gates...
Below the castle stands the Church of the Magi.
