“The 2019 season was very fruitful and full of activities,” said Matej Starják from the association Zemplínsko-užská Hradná Cesta, which cares about the preservation and promotion of the Zemplín region, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
They succeeded in publicly presenting a replica of the middle-age paddle lift, and they discovered another entrance gate that was unknown before. Reconstruction of the Renaissance palace was also ongoing and the most representative building is accessible to the public thanks to the 40 employed people at the castle and many other volunteers.
All the work at the castle is conducted without the use of electricity. Another specific thing is that all objects needed for work are produced by the workers. These are specifically metal hook nails and nails coming from the castle forge as well as ropes.
Next year, there are plans to bake bread in the local castle oven.
