The discovery of the Holy Crown
The treasure-keeping role and significance of the Castle of Füzér is linked to many historical events, including the Holy Crown of Hungary. The castle being rebuilt today preserves the customs and values that our ancestors left to us, but have been undeservedly forgotten for hundreds of years.
During the exhibition we can see the Holy Crown in detail and learn about the important stages of its past. We get a detailed explanation of the people on it and what role they play in the history of our country.
With the help of present technique, we can “grab” the crown and rotate it to our liking, so we can see it from a perspective that we may never have before.
Living Castle in Zemplén
The furniture currently arranged throughout the castle is made on the basis of the original castle inventories preserved in the archives of the 17th century.
The study of nearly a hundred contemporary pieces of furniture helped the process of their creation. Most of the furniture is tribute to the work of the hands of local masters and joiners from Kassa.
Unfortunately, after the burning of the castle, not even a single original element was left to us, no pieces of wood or stone, since the stone carvings that survived the fire also disappeared during the destruction of the castle. In the REG-ÉLŐ castle, each piece of furniture can be used and tested.
Castles of the Carpathian Basin
The exhibition consisting of drawings by Frigyes Kőnig, Munkácsy Prize-winning artist and graphic designer, and images selected from the book “Historia Picta Castellorum”, will guide us digitally through the 3000 castles of the Carpathian Basin on an interactive map.
With the help of an interactive map we can learn about the castles of the Carpathian Basin. In addition, nearly 70 pictures on canvas prints were exhibited on screens, which show the former castles in a unique way.
Füzér, Siklós, Kisnána and Sümeg, Visegrád, Fiume, Diósgyőr and Eger — all in one place, isn’t it great?!
Coins of Füzér
How have currencies evolved over time? The exhibition “Coins of Füzér” gives us a glimpse into this, thanks to which we can see not only original medal finds found at excavations, but also copies which are from the collection of the Herman Ottó Museum in Miskolc, but they were certainly used for trading in Füzér as well. The world of coins, though not specifically, enables us to imagine much better the former everyday life of the castle’s heyday.
Lapidarium - stone library
The Castle of Füzér has an unusually rich and high-quality stock of medieval and Renaissance stone carvings.
The stone library exhibition can be divided into two basic units: the first one in the Old Cellar traces the building history of the castle, on which each building era is represented by a typical stone structure. Here you can also see a Renaissance window frame, a stone seating and a piece of measurement.
The second part of the composition introduces the visitor to the medieval stone carving craft in the Beam Cellar. In the same place you can admire stone cannon and rifle balls and even the original breath-taking rock of the Castle Hill!
