Castle and side events
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 will be in one of the three wings of the building, which are also connected by underground passageways. The Sasvár Castle hotel**** superior has 53 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 private consultations. In addition, the Castle has an impressive courtyard with nighttime illumination.
We can accommodate 110 guests in single and double beds, and 10 more with the hotels truckle beds (placement according to registration order). We would like to fulfill all roommate requests but playing with as many people as possible is our topmost priority. Thank you for your understanding!
