About the park
One of decisive reasons why the idea to build this tourist attraction originated was a significant discovery in the extramural settlement of the castle of Ľubovniansky hrad. The discovery was gradually supplemented with historical documents and artifacts showing that the oldest preserved distillery in Slovakia, built in the middle of the 18th century, was located in Stará Ľubovňa. The distillery is also mentioned in the description of the Ľubovňa castle in the Hungarian geographic dictionary dated from 1851. The base of the old distillery has been lying under the castle until now and apparently it is the oldest preserved object of this kind in the territory of Slovakia. Nestville Park is a gate to knowing one of the most picturesque corners of Slovakia. Our aim is to catch up on the intellectual property and traditions of people from the northern Spiš region and in this way to preserve it for future generations. In addition to learning about the history of the region and its most important events, we would also like to show you exhibitions of historical events which have significantly influenced the production of spirits as well as any related crafts in the northern Spiš region. At the end of the exhibition visitors may see a spirits-tasting room which is a brilliant work of art of local woodcarvers. There is the biggest carved picture in Europe which took 3 years to be made and it forms the heart of the whole exhibition. Visit to the room is accompanied by a small surprise – a special reward - tasting of a unique drink produced by the company.
