Füzér, lying in an astounding natural setting, is one of the few seigneurial castles in Hungary which in all probability was already standing prior to the Mongol invasion of 1241-42. Its name was first mentioned in a charter of 1264, but another document dating from 1270 states that the owner of the castle in the first half of the 13th century was “Blind” Andronicus of the Kompolt clan, from...

The castle and restaurant of Boldogkő
History of the castle of Boldogkő
The castle was first mentioned in a certificate, issued by Andras (Andrew) the III. In the beginning of the 14th century the castle was occupied by Aba Amadé, then it belonged to King Károly (Charles) Anjou. During the middle age among others the nobel families Bebek and Czudar possessed the castle.
In the 17th century the castle was no longer an important military base. In the 19th century the nobel family Péchy turned the remaining covered rooms into a grain storage and they made reconstruction works on the walls.
From the history i like to study the Middleage and visit the castles (castleruins) from this date. Every old castle (castleruin) has intersting atmosphere. In Europe (especially in Slovakia and Hungary and Ukraine) we have so many castles and castleruins. Sometimes is good to say that Slovakia is a country of castles. I have never visited the Hungarian castles. In 2018 I visited the Ukraine (Zakarpatie) and I saw there so many beautiful places (castles as well). I discovered if near of my house (100 km) I can find castles (which I have never visited) And I found in Hungary, namely Füzér and Boldogkő (Picture below). I visited both of them. It was amazing, not only the beutiful view from this castles, but middleage restaurant in Boldogkő was great. You are in restaurant, where everything looks like "from middleage" For more details, please see my Photos below.
