The ruins of Čabraď Castle are located in the middle of nature, undisturbed by a modern civilization, in the heart of a natural reservation in the cadastral area of Čabradský Vrbovok in Krupinský district in the Middle Slovakia. The beginnings of the castle are not known precisely because of insufficient and unclear sources, but it can be assumed that it originated in the 13th century, but more likely during the 14th century. The end of the castle can be considered year 1812 when its owner František Kohári ordered to burn it. The non-profit Rondel civic association is currently working on ruins, which is responsible for its preservation.

The stone used is quartzite. Illustrative photos from donor collections of Mrs.Maďar and Mrs. Nagyová. For what we thank them.
The incentive for the construction of the water structure Môťová was based on the post-war growth requirements of industrial companies in Zvolen. They required an urgent solution to water provision. The reservoir was created by damming the Slatina stream with a natural homogeneous dam. The construction of the waterworks did not require any resettlement of the population, liquidation of residential houses or other constructions. The flooded area consisted mainly of meadows and pastures. VS It was built on the river Slatina in the years 1953 – 1957. The filling of the reservoir was started in 1957. After reaching the maximum level, the function of the earth dam was performed. The Môťová reservoir serves for balancing the minimum flow rates on the Slatina River, it provides service water for the timber industry and for the Zvolen heating plant. Its secondary purpose is to produce electricity. As the reservoir is in the immediate vicinity of Zvolen, it is also used for recreation, sport fishing and water sports. The water work is administered by the Slovak State Water Management Company.
Problems with the lack of drinking water in the Ipľa region began to be felt in 1977. The solution was the construction of the Málinec waterworks, which they started to implement on 1 April 1986. The tank was put into operation in 1994 and now the cities of Fiľakovo are supplied with drinking water. Lučenec and Veľký Krtíš. In the flooded area completely disappeared settlement Hamor, but also the surrounding settlements Hrozinovo, Chmelná, Šťavica. The work itself consists of its own water reservoir on the upper Ipľa river and water treatment plant. The dam height is 53 meters and the total reservoir volume is over 26 million cubic meters. It is interesting that the river Ipeľ has all 12 tributaries in the Málinca cadastre from the right bank. The tributaries of Chocholná and Smolná are so extensive that they are almost equivalent to the Ipeľ River. It was the resource yield that was decisive in the selection of the building for the drinking water supply in Málinec.
