History and personalities

The Budmerice manor house, or also Pálffy manor house, was originally built as a hunting lodge by Ján Pálffy (1857-1934) in 1889. Count Pálffy came from the Červený Kameň line of an older branch of the family, not to be confused with the earlier born Count Ján František Pálffy. The Renaissance castles on the Loire River were probably the inspiration for the construction. Changes in the castle took place in the 19th century and were of a utilitarian nature. The manor house was a summer residence for the manor and since Ján Pálffy loved hunting, hunting was often done in its vicinity. There was also a pheasant near the manor house, and even today it is possible to find the remains of its fencing in the forest. The Pálffys were landowners in Budmerice. Budmerice was part of their Červený Kameň estate at the time.

During the 2nd world war, the manor house was plundered. In 1945 it was taken by the Czechoslovak Republic. It served for labor recreation and training. It later fell to the Literary Fund. The revitalization of the park took place in 1963. The manor house is currently renovated and is in good condition. The last major reconstruction took place in 1986. It served as the Home of Slovak Writers until 2011.
