Project description

The aim of the project is to renovate the manor house, originally a summer baroque residence of Count Ján Karol Esterhazy, located in the middle of Franz Schubert Park, close to Owl Castle, Franz Sacher´s House and the center of the town of Želiezovce. The manor is currently in a desolate state and is therefore not open to the public or tourists. The building is on the list of priority protection linked to this challenge and consists of four wings in the Baroque style. For the purposes of this project, the city focuses on the renovation of the entire roof of the building and the rooms in the northeast wing. After the reconstruction of the roof and the north-eastern wing, this part of the manor house will be reopened and thus open to the public for a visit. The project will be supported by cooperation with partners NOPA - Norwegian Society of Composers and Copywriters will contribute to the project by participating in three project conferences, Castellum Zeliz - Civic Association and the Basic Organization of the Hungarian Social and Cultural Union in Slovakia - Csemadok Želiezovce.
