Castle and side events

Castle Sasvár

In Mátra Hills there is a hidden jewel box the Sasvár castle hotel. In 1827 a bath house was built on the Dominium of the Károlyi family, later in 1881 a neo-renaissance style castle was constructed based on Miklós Ybl’s plans. Sasvár means Eagle Keep in Hungarian, and the whole village took this name.

Carpathian Conclave players can choose between three wings of the building, which are also connected by underground passageways. The Sasvár Castle hotel**** superior has 52 rentable rooms and 5 suites. The various rooms, such as the Monarchy Room, Millennium Room and Sala Terrena Salon provide an ideal setting for the Clan meetings and for the Conclave Sections meetings. In the Castle’s tower there are three smaller salons for privy consultations. In addition, the Castle has an impressive courtyard with nighttime illumination.
