Báthory Erzsébet


Last weekend I visited the ruins of the castle in Čachtice (Csejte), which used to be the home of Erzsébet Báthory who is alleged to be the world’s most prolific female serial killer… she was a Hungarian noblewoman from the Báthory family of nobility in the Kingdom of Hungary.

There is a room with infographical tables in the castle with texts (in English, German, Hungarian and Slovak) about her, the era and the castle itself. Be sure to visit the place once you visit Slovakia. 😉

You can read some more about her on wikipedia or here.
