Plaveč is a castle ruin on a gentle hill above the village of Plaveč. The castle was built at the end of the 13th century as a border fortress. However, the building burned down in the 19th century and since then it has been in ruins.

Only remains of walls with a round bastion have been preserved from the castle. A gradual restoration is currently under way and some of the underground spaces have been discovered. In recent years, Plaveč has been a popular tourist attraction.

The local civic association "Džatky" organizes cultural program Day of Plaveč Castle every year on the last Sunday of August.

The castle is freely accessible and can be reached by car or on foot from the village of Plaveč in about 10 minutes.
