The Füzér Castle restoration project is underway as part of both the National Castle Program and the National Fortress Program.
Phase one will see a 17th-century papermaking workshop open in Malompince for museum education programs; and as a visual experience a film about the history of guarding the Holy Crown will be screened.
Plans for phase two include interactive gastronomic presentations based on medieval recipes in the restored buildings and in the castle kitchen.
At Darabont House, visitors will receive an insight into the everyday life of the castle guard, another wing of the castle will offer a range of astronomical programs, a star map and a cultural history presentation of the Milky Way system.
The castle courtyard will be suitable for outdoor and evening programs, with decorative lighting and a number of adventure elements, including selfie spots and panorama points to North Zemplén.
At the bottom of the castle hill, the hanging gardens offer family and child-friendly activities, while the castle’s efficient maintenance and power supply will be facilitated by a hidden solar park.
The already profitable Füzér Castle will not only increase its attractiveness through the new developments, but will also create more jobs for the local community.
