Description

A beautiful manor house in Malacky used to be the seat of the Pallfy family. The building was built on the initiative of Count Paul IV. Palffy in the first half of the 17th century. The building has been rebuilt several times over the course of history. The mansion got its present appearance during the Classicist reconstruction between 1807-1808.

The mansion includes large English park and mansion courtyard, where there is a restored well with the animal from Palffy coat of arms - deer. There are many old trees in the castle park. Only one lime tree is preserved from the original dense lime alley. To the south of the mansion, there is a reconstructed fountain and cave of the Virgin Mary (Grota). In the past, the park contained a riding hall, greenhouses, a gardener's house and a concierge.

It is assumed that under the park itself, there is a large complex of secret corridors that come directly from the mansion. The escape corridors were supposed to run to several sides, Rohožník, Small mansion and Black monastery.

The original interior was decorated with many hunting trophies, precious furniture and a large collection of weapons. In the corner of the east and north wing of the chateau there was a chapel of St. Cross.

Today, part of the mansion is reconstructed. You can see a Palffy room with period furniture there too. Visitors can see an exhibition of photographs documenting the reconstruction of the building in the manor house. The exhibition space hosts art and professional exhibitions and lectures.
