• Kaštieľna 6, Betliar

Seven kilometers from the mining town of Rožňava, there is the picturesque village of Betliar, which boasts of a magnificent manor house with original furnishings and collections that attract visitors from all over the world.

The manor house dates back to the early 18th century and was built on the foundations of an older Renaissance Bebek's mansion. It was built by Stephen Andrassy as a storeyed manor house with four corner towers. Later in the course of history, the mansion underwent several construction modifications.

The mansion was filled by its owners with a number of rare furniture, works of art and collections. The prevalence of the collections consists of paintings, especially paintings of realistm artists of the 19th century. The second part of the collections (on the ground floor) consists of imported exotic objects and hunting trophies that are not of equal value to art collections. The park is enriched not only by lakes but also by smaller garden buildings (pavilions, grottos, flowmeters). There are also rare exotic trees and the remains of an ancient yew forest.
