The exquisite Chateau Mojmírovce is situated 15 km (9.4 mi) southwards from the region center Nitra in the village of Mojmírovce.
The first written reference to a former town with rich history dates back to 1156. There are several monuments in the village that are a testimony to its interesting past. One of them is the Chateau Mojmírovce that is located in the romantic setting of a park reserve.
The history of the chateau started after the end of the Ottoman wars in the period when refugees returned back to villages – original inhabitants as well as new settlers. In 1721, the Hunyadis built a large palace in Baroque style, later on, after a fire, it was rebuilt in the Classicist style. There used to be a botanical garden called a 'glass-house' which was part of the chateau, however, it does not exist any longer.
The Hunyadis were proud of a big horse-breeding farm where they bred thoroughbred breeds of Arabian, Spanish and Italian horses. The success of the horse-breeding was an incentive for organizing public horse racing which took place at the Hunyadi estate in 1814. It was to become historically the first horse-racing event in the then Hungarian Kingdom.
After several reconstructions, the chateau and the former Žrebčín (horse-breeding farm) were turned into a modern hotel and congress facility with comprehensive tourist services. The Baroque - Classicist chateau in Mojmírovce is not only a significant monument, but also a cultural, tourist and education center of the region of Nitra.
