The town of Humenné is situated in the east of Slovakia and it has a truly beautiful, originally Renaissance chateau. In the 19th century it was reconstructed in the Baroque style.
The powerful Drugeth family built it on the site of an old Gothic castle and for centuries it was the seat of one of the largest feudal estates in Slovakia.
Later, the Renaissance-Baroque building fell in hands of the noble family Andrássy who reconstructed it into a form similar to French Baroque chateau.
Now it houses the Vihorlatské múzeum (Museum of the Vihorlat Region) with collections from the spheres of art, history and natural history. Their content is related to the region of upper Zemplín. Artistic historical exhibition, gallery of Kings of Hungary, Chinese drawing room, collection of arms, and the unique collection of Celtic-Dacian coins from the 2nd century BC are the interesting items deposited here.
Rare wooden species are grown in the garden of the chateau and there is an open-air museum exhibiting folk architecture.
