Kinizsi Castle will be reconfigured for a billion forints, with the aim of providing a true picture of its original condition and functions.
The overhaul of Kinizsi Castle in Nagyvázsony is part of a national program, implemented thanks to a financial supplement of 1,016 million forints provided by the European Union – announced Hungary's National Heritage Protection Development (NÖF).
The main aim of this project is to create an exhibition space that meets modern requirements. The ground floor areas will be reconstructed, while the former upstairs rooms will be embellished by various architectural solutions. The upper levels of the wings surrounding the courtyard will be accessible through an arched loggia formed with rebuilt contemporary elements – according to veol.hu.
The new exhibition will focus on Pál Kinizsi and the history of the medieval Black Army, but it will also highlight the legends surrounding Kinizsi’s wife, Benigna.
Archaeological works in the castle are already underway while reconstruction begins next year, followed by the installation of the exhibition. Plans call for the renovated castle to be open to visitors from 2020.
