Slovaks are mainly Catholic, there are some protestants as well.

BTW this is a really pretty place. I especially like the city square.

What is the story behind the ruined castle in the last pic?

to be short
Lietava castle is one of the biggest castles in Slovakia. The original parts of this castle were destroyed by Tatars and in the 13th century it was rebuilt and became a property of a rich family which owned 25 nearby villages. The style of the castle has been changed number of times. The last changes in its appearance were made by two families - Zapolskovci and Turzovci. The castle was desolated in the 17th century.
