The only one of its kind in Slovakia, the park houses historic reconstructions of castles the way they looked some 300 to 500 years ago, when still buzzing with life and witnessing the reigns of mighty feudal lords. Currently, the collection numbers more than 80 models of fortresses, castles, churches, lookout towers and houses of prominent Slovaks. You can find there also models of cottages from the High Tatras and traditional houses from Vlkolínec.
Among the largest models in the park are Holíč Castle (6 x 6 m) and Bratislava Castle (8 x 7 m), which, unlike other models, shows current appearance of the castle with beautiful baroque gardens.
