Interesting facts about the
Manor House of Draškovič

Establishment of the Manor House

According to the inventories from 1692 and 1711, Nikola Draškovič built the residence from the ground up as a new building in 1677. By marrying the Countess Barbora Drugeth, the granddaughter of Elizabeth Báthory, Nikola inherited shares of the manor.

Purchase of the Manor House by the Forgách family

The shares disposed of by Teresa Keglevich were bought up by, among other nobles, Count Paul Forgách, Sr., who inherited part of the Drugeth estate from his mother and Zigmund Drugeth’s sister, Countess Krisztina Drugeth. In 1710, Forgách eventually also acquired the Draškovič share of the manor with the manor house from Keglevich, in exchange for the Forgách shares in Drugeth assets in Zemplín and Uh County.

The Manor House as a dosshouse

In the 19th and early 20th century, the manor house served as a dosshouse for poor population, which had fatal effects on its condition. Under the former regime, the building underwent major reconstruction.
