Historical Origin And Design Inspiration

The Smolenice Castle is a castle in the eastern slope of the Little Carpathians, near the town of Smolenice, Slovakia. The Smolenice Castle was build up in the half of 15th century, but it was destroyed during the Rakoci's uprising and Napoleanic wars. In 1777 the count Jan Palffy from Pezinok inherited the entire Smolenice but did not reside in the castle due to its poor condition and lack of money for rebuilding it. The castle was only rebuilt up in the 20th century, by order of the count Jozef Palffy. The architect Jozef Hubert projected the new castle by using the Kreuzenstein castle near Vienna as a model, and the works were controlled by the architect Pavol Reiter from Bavaria.


During its construction there were masters from Italy, Germany, Austria and Hungary, and 60 workmen from Smolenice and nearby villages. The main building has two wings and a tower, and is made of ferroconcrete. The castle was damaged in the spring of 1945 during the World War II, and in that same year the state became the owner of it. Some reconstructions have been made after 1950,
