Castle of Nagyvázsony

Vázsonykő is located in the village of Nagyvázsony in Veszprém County. The construction of the fortress built on the banks of the Eger stream is attributed to László Vezsenyi. Founded at the beginning of the 15th century, the castle gained its fame from one of the most famous heroes of Hungarian history, Pál Kinizsi, in 1472. The castle retained its military role until the Rákóczi War of Independence, but from then until the middle of the 19th century it was only used as a manorial prison. The weathered fortress was destroyed by an earthquake and a fire, and its dilapidated walls were excavated and preserved in the 1950s and 1960s. Starting in 2017, the castle was renovated within the framework of the National Castle Program, the design of the new exhibition established here, and the reconstruction models of the 5 historical eras displayed in it were created with the help of our experts, who were Gergely Buzás and Zsófia Lukács.
