PALACE ISLAND OF EDELÉNY

Adore one of the most imposing Baroque palaces and the largest series of Rococo paintings of Hungary. Learn about the history of the palace and its residents, and explore the majestic building and its park with a guided tour.

Site description

The fabulous palace buildings and the park built on an island of the Bódva River await visitors in their old splendour. The L’Huillier-Coburg Palace in Edelény is the seventh largest of its kind in the country and a precious relic of Baroque architecture. The building deserves special attention because of its architecture: here the traditional U shape does not embrace the front garden but looks backward. The rooms upstairs also feature spectacular Rococo wall-paintings that were probably done in the 1760s.

 

An arresting 3D feature film informs visitors about the history of the builders and residents of the palace. The art motives and characters of the one-time residents appearing in the film can also be noticed on the palace walls and the guides draw the visitors’ attention to them in a playful manner.

Map collection – permanent exhibition

The former owners of the palace pursued military careers, and maps were essential tools for them. The palace houses a collection of 16th-19th-century maps with Hungarian relevance. The peculiarity of the display is the array of different tools and instruments used for mapmaking at the age.

 

„Népszuper” – permanent exhibition

„Népszuper” is both the fancy name of a radio and the title of a unique historical exhibition in Hungary. The display shows the peculiar material culture of a period of about 25 years following World War II. The exhibition is located in the former farm buildings of the palace which were used as homes between the 1950s and the middle of the 1980s.

The wonderful palace is surrounded by a park of about 12 hectares that can be visited freely. Following the program, visitors may enjoy some coffee in the café of the palace.
