The objective of this project is revitalization and restoration of a Cultural Monument - the Manor House of Draškovič, which is situated in Čachtice village. It is a historical building, dating back to the 17th century based on an architectural and historical research.
The project "Revitalization of the Manor House of Draškovič in Čachtice" was successful in the first call for proposals within the programme "Cultural entrepreneurship, cultural heritage and cultural cooperation". It is co-financed from the EEA Financial Mechanism 2014-2021 and the state budget of the Slovak Republic as one of 19 projects out of 66 submitted project applications in total. The project applicant, The Self-Governing Region of Trenčín is the manor house’s owner, and the project partner, the Museum of Trenčín, is the administrator of the manor house.
The aim of the project is a comprehensive restoration of the Manor House of Draškovič, with the purpose of inserting new functions into the building situated in a place with a significant year-on-year increase in the number of visitors (especially thanks to the Čachtice castle nearby). The project is needed in terms of preserving and maintaining the manor house in order to prevent its greater damage and deterioration, as well as to preserve current exhibitions of the museum.
The manor house will serve not only as a place of presentation of history (museum) but also as a place of providing services at the level of the 21st century. In the newly reconstructed premises of the manor house, visitors will be given the opportunity to relax and refresh in the newly established café and be able to use the services of the tourist - information centre. The conditions for creating new expositions will be created and extended and a cultural and creative centre will be established. In cooperation with the project partner, cultural and educational activities will be organized.
