The history of the hotel

The building in Art Nouveau style, which today houses the Boutique Hotel Dubná Skala****, was built between 1906 and 1913 by the spirits seller and restaurateur Jozef Karas. There is no information about what was previously in this place. However, we can say with certainty that there were houses made of wood or clay bricks. Other owners also came from the Karas family. One of the last was the Žilina’s mayor and controversial politician from the time of the first Slovak Republic, JUDr. Vojtech Tvrdý.

During the socialist era, Dubná Skala was a well-known wine bar and restaurant with gypsy music. Extensive reconstruction and modernization was carried out in 2006 by the new owner of the hotel, but even this time the original appearance of the building was preserved along with its unique atmosphere. Today’s four-star hotel thus continued its long-standing tradition and name. (Source: Peter Štanský and Milan Novák).
