Thury Castle
Rapporteur: castle captain György Thury
The performance will take you on a magical journey back in time, as the history of Thury Castle comes to life. The fortress was once called Újlaki Castle, because the Újlaki family started building it. Participants will gain an insight into the clothes worn by one of the most controversial figures of the 15th century, Miklós Újlaki. A turn in the wheel of time and we are already in the era of the legendary champion, George Thury, "The Lion of Transdanubia" is brought to life by the castle captain George Thury. Then we talk about the Zichy family, who for nearly two hundred years were the dominant figures of Várpalota. We learn about the sad fate of Paulina Zichy, the last mistress of the castle.
Entrance is free of charge!
The event is organised in the framework of the project "In the footsteps of our values", call number HUNG-2022/9019.
