    next to the admission: Castle souvenir shop

    by GentleSpirit Written Aug 13, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There was a nice souvenir shop next to where you paid your admission to the castle. Prices were probably average.

    What to buy: Please be mindful of labels- I bought a DVD, checked to make sure it was compatible with what we use here in the States. Brought it home and put it in and nothing, they coded the DVD, might work in Europe but not here!.

    now i wish i had bought a book and some postcards or something like that:)

    get yourself a good book of pictures of the castle, it really is pretty

    Suveniry, Souvenirs: Slovak T-shirts and hats

    T-SHIRTS  AND  HATS

    You can buy various t-shirts and hats in that store - enlarge my pic. Most of them with inscription Slovensko (Slovakia), heraldic arms of Slovakia and Oravsky Podzamok etc. Not great choice to be honest and limited choice of sizes as well.

    What to buy: White T-shirt with Slovak heraldic arm if you like.

    What to pay: 208 Sk for a T-shirt for me - XL now :-(.
    You could buy in Slovakia:
    36.3 Sk for $1
    42.9 Sk for 1 Euro
    9.47 Sk for 1 Polish zloty

    Suveniry, Souvenirs: Souvenirs

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    SUVENIRY  GIFT  SHOP/STORE

    There is a store called Suveniry/souvenirs in the same wooden cottage where ticket office is located. There are numerous small gifts to choose from there including: paintings and drawings of the castle and the village, pottery, various figures and statues of... witches and medieval knights, T-shirts and so on.
    Hmm... rather kitschy items although if you are enough patient you find something interesting.

    What to buy: I liked handmade crayon (black and white or in one colour - brown for example) drawings of local wooden architecture. Notice that you should buy real picture-frame later.

    What to pay: 120 - 150 Sk for a handmade drawing or painting (small size).
    You could buy in Slovakia:
    36.3 Sk for $1
    42.9 Sk for 1 Euro
    9.47 Sk for 1 Polish zloty

    By a parking lot: First shopping opportunity

    by matcrazy1 Updated Dec 6, 2003

    FIRST  SHOPPING  OPORTUNITY

    We saw the first store put up in a small, wooden (temporary = mobile, I think) shelter just by a parking lot on the right walking towards the castle.

    They sold some kitschy souvenirs and toys (not great variety), newspapers, cigarettes and ice-creams there. Hmm... nothing interesting maybe except... a salesman very busy reading newspapers. He didn't pay any attention to us so we ignored him as well. Was he a friend of monster-lady from parking lot described in my Warnings Or Dangers tip?

    What to buy: Nothing, hmm... eventually ice-cream by Algida company if you like (rather in summer time hehe).

    What to pay: Cheap area.
