Topoľčianky Manor House and Castle

Topoľčianky Manor House and Castle

The village of Vopoľčianky, located in western Slovakia in the foothills of the Tribeč Mountanis, boasts an extensive park in the English style with a picturesque manor house in the Classicist style, which forms the southern wing of an older castle. At the beginning of the 19th century, the castle’s owner at the time, Count Ján Keglevich pulled down the southern Renaissance wing of the castle and replaced it with a Classicist tract, which is considered one of the purest and most beautiful examples of Classicist architecture in Slovakia. The castle was the Habsburgs’ summer residence in times past and also served as the summer residence for the presidents of Czechoslovakia following World War I. During this period, the entire castle’s three Renaissance-style wings also underwent their most recent extensive modifications. The Classicist wing of the castle was gradually turned into a museum. Visitors to this museum today can marvel at a substantial library with more than 14,000 volumes, one of the few preserved castle libraries in Slovakia.
