Čachtice Castle / The Blood Castle by *Vasek*

This is one of the almost-killed-myself-while-taking-this kind of shots.

Čachtice was built in the mid-13th century by Kazimir as a sentry on the road to Moravia. Later, it belonged to Matúš Csák, the Stibor family, and then to the famous Bloody Lady Elizabeth Báthory.

The castle was a residence and later the prison of the Countess Elizabeth Báthory, who is alleged to have been the world's most prolific female serial killer. This is why it is often nicknamed as "The Blood Castle"

It was also used as the castle ruins set featured in the opening sequence of the 1996 fantasy movie Dragonheart by Universal Pictures.
