Manor house in Horná Ves

At present only the ruins of the fortification with a single preserved basement.



At the beginning of the 15th century the village owners, the family of Hunyady, built a fortified building of an early-medieval manor house. In the 16th century, the building was renewed in the late gothic style of a renaissance castle. During the second World War the castle was badly damaged and gradually devastated.

This extensive building consisted of three-storey single-tract building with an irregular ground plan, with a polygonal ledge on the south and with relatively high tower with a square ground floor plan directed towards the central axis of the building. On the left of the tower, there is a smaller flat buttress ending the eastern facade. In the southern wing of the building was a black kitchen with a hallway and fireplace above. In the welkin-arched tower was a chapel, whose interior modifications and furniture dated approximately back to 1749. The second-floor rooms were arched with vaults decorated with lunettes or cross with combs dating back to 1600 except a large room at the eastern side, which had late gothic timber ceiling with a bearer. The third-floor buildings were covered in wooden timber ceiling. In the atrium on the third floor was a renaissance fireplace made of color tiles from the 17th century. The western single-tract wing included representative rooms. Minor repairs were made in the manor house in the 19th century. During the second World War the manor house was badly damaged and gradually devastated.

In the 17th century this manor housed the chair congregation. This took place at the time when Ladislav Hunyady was the first district vice-adminstrator. The family of Hunyady at that time became the owner of the village realties and was closely related to the village itself. According to the portal registers, in 16th century the family of Majthény became the owners of land, in some periods referred to as the sole owners. They also owned the castle of Sivý Kameň. The preserved documents indicate that the family of Majthény and Hunyady disputed over the land ownership in the village. The documents from 1586 read that family of Majthény treated their cotters in a cruel manner. In 18th century the village made part of the system of the estate of the family of Majthény, whose center was represented by Sivý Kameň.
The last female owners of the former property of the Majthény family after the death of the father Rudolph Majthény, who was run down by a tram in Budapest in 1918 and was buried under the church in Čereňany, became his two daughters Maria Tarnoczy (maiden name Majthényi) and Gabriela Gostony (maiden name Majthényi). In 1923 the state took possession of their property.

The Memorial of the fallen soldiers

What is worth mentioning when it comes to secularly sights is the Memorial of the fallen soldiers, which is placed in the center of the village.

The Manor House

One of the dominant features of the village is the manor house built in 1622 by the order of Michal Bošány and his wife Margaréta during the Turkish invasion. The manor house was originally built as a renaissance building, but was rebuilt in baroque style in the 18th century. In 1860 it was completely rebuilt in romantic-neogothic style with the preservation of the part of the ground floor rooms.




It is a 4-wing building built around a rectangular arcade yard with towers on the corners.     The facade of the building is segmented by neogothic architectural elements. The double-tract ground floor has a neogothic chapel and richly decorated portal. On the second floor there are representative rooms with wooden facing and prototypal parquet. The romantic knight hall with busts of knights on the walls.

In the interior, the tapestry placed in the ceremonial hall represents the king sitting on the throne and surrounded by a large number of figures. The relief portrait of the barone Thonet is from 1904 by P. Breithut. The rococo style frame comes from the second third of the 18th century.





In 1865 the manor house was purchased by the family of Thonet, which owned the house until the end of the World War II. At present the manor house is owned by one of the descendants of the family of Thonet. Nowadays, it is inaccessible to the general public due to reconstruction.
