TOP OF SLOVAKIA - GALANTA






Galanta 

the town situated on the south of Slovakia, 

is linked with one of the branches 

of the aristocratic Magyar Esterházy family. 


The family left the two important historical 

buildings – the Renaissance Manor House 

(from the 17th century) and the Neo-Gothic 

Manor House (from the year 1860).



The Neo-Gothic Manor House in Galanta 

was built in 1633 by brothers 

Daniel and Paul Esterházy 

as a renaissance fortress. 


In 1736 it was rebuilt in the baroque style. 

Its present-day look is the result 

of the vast reconstruction done 

by Joseph Esterházy, who was inspired 

by the romantic English Gothic style.




(Unfortunately now closed 
and abandoned 
- waiting for his reconstruction)
