During one of the numerous reconstructions of the castle interior of the castle chapel was renewed in the early-baroque style. Here is an interesting story about former owners of the castle:
"Curiosity and courage were properties the noble princess Beata Laska of Kezmarok Castle certainly possessed. Otherwise she would never have set out on a trip accompanied by several burghers from Ke?marok to the not too distant Snow Mountains (today called the Tatras) in 1565. When the princess returned three days later, after having visited Zelene pleso lake, her angry husband was waiting for her at the gate of the castle. He decided to have the princess interned in the strongest tower where she passed six long years in extremely hard conditions. The only relief for the unfortunate princess was that the tower had two small windows, one overlooking her beloved Snow Mountains, and the other through which she was given food."
I bet that he loved her!!!! Or... it's not easy to be a princess (real, not Disney one).
