Rate it Thanks for rating

The eighteenth century Rococo-Classical manor house in Dolná Strehová, surrounded by a large English park, was commissioned to be built by the Madáchs, a Hungarian yeoman family. Nowadays, the manor house is a part of the Museum of Hungarian Culture in Slovakia. The museum’s exhibition shows the life and work of Imre Madách, an important Hungarian writer and playwright born in Dolná Strehová. The most well-known and influential of his works is the dramatic poem The Tragedy of Man, oftentimes compared to Goethe’s Faust or Milton’s Paradise Lost. Not only that, Dolná Strehová is connected with other important figures of Hungarian literary and cultural life as well, for example the famous Hungarian polymath of Slovak-Hungarian parentage, Matej Bel or Matthias Bel, who used to attend the local Latin school.
Apart from the Madách Manor House, visitors to Dolná Strehová can also enjoy the local thermal resort. In addition to whirlpools and relaxation pools, there is a huge water slide to keep the children entertained as well.
