Betliar - hunting manor house

Fairy tale-like two-storied building surrounded by a wonderful English park with romantic structures including an artificial cave and waterfall. One of the most remarkable things about the manor house is its main library established in 1790 with the furniture and interior of the library from the same period. More than 14 thousand volumes of mainly theological, historical, geographical and philosophical literature from the 15th to 19th century written in 6 different languages have been preserved in the library.
