Came across this while on a family visit to Slovakia.
Interesting tour notes. According to the guide, the canon took 30 minutes to load and fire. The walls were 4 to 7 metres thick and Orava was never defeated. The great sword display is very interesting, defenders were paid extra to carry these beasts and as a result, their life expectancy was just 3 hours.
