ARISTOKRATICKÉ REZIDENCIE V TRENČIANSKEJ STOLICI NA PRÍKLADE KAŠTIEĽA V TEPLIČKE NAD VÁHOM
Manor house at Teplička nad Váhom as an example of an aristocratic residence in the county of Trenčín
Languages of publication
The manor house (kaštieľ, castellum) at Teplička nad Váhom had an outstanding position for almost 30 years in the time of Stephen Dersffy and his sons Nicholas and Francis. After its completion, these aristocrats abandoned the hilltop castle of Strečno as their permanent residence. They did this in accordance with the trend of the time in the county of Trenčín, to build comfortable Renaissance manor houses with sufficiently impressive rooms. The Wesselenyi family enlarged the manor house to its present size. There was an extensive reconstruction in the Rococo spirit in the second half of the 18th century. The imperial aristocrat Joseph Windischgrätz gave the manor house a form fully corresponding to the trends of imperial Vienna. He showed that the architectural projects of the imperial aristocracy were among the most advanced in the Kingdom of Hungary.
