The Dessewffy Castle was built around 1820 in neo-classical style. The chapel, next to the castle, was built by the Countess. The last enlargement of the castle took place during the time of Aurél Dessewffy, around 1870. That was the time when the castle received its form as we see it today. Now it serves as a students hostel. The English park around the castle is a protected historical garden, full of native and exotic trees and shrubs, some of them are older than 150 years.
