Travelling through the Southern Great Plain, you can discover treasures hidden even from castle lovers, such as Almásy Mansion in Gyula or Wenckheim Palace in Szabadkígyós. Enter the buildings, marvel at the splendour of a bygone age and let yourself be enchanted and captivated by this past era – at least for a few hours.
Where the past comes to life: the magical world of Almásy Mansion
Restored in 2016, this beautiful baroque castle is a place where the past comes to life, which is no exaggeration, as the former residents of the Mansion really do “come to life” thanks to a special technology called holoprojection. The interactive exhibition in the visitor centre also gives you a glimpse of true luxury, the strict daily routine of the lords and the secret world of the staff who served them. Where did the lady’s maids live? How did they polish the silver and pre-warm the lady’s bed? You’ll find all the answers here.
Don’t miss Huszár Tower, where you can see contemporary fine art exhibitions, and the tower’s observation deck opposite offers a magnificent panorama of Gyula Castle and the Castle Park.
